The Construction Industry has seen a dramatic transformation over the last 10-15 years. Builders Merchants' best equipped to service, in particular the 'drainage market', have been purchased by various large national groups, creating a noticeable gap in the market for the 'specialist' Independent Merchant. The all-important choice for the customer remains extremely limited.
Rudridge is a company specialising in the distribution of groundwork and civil engineering materials. Started by Directors Robert Rudd and Alan Betteridge, the company commenced trading in Farnham, Surrey in May 2000 and were delighted to quickly open a second Branch in Gravesend, Kent in September 2002. Our third Branch was opened in May 2009 in Brentford, Middlesex, and most recently, the essential fourth Branch was opened in Horsham, West Sussex. Currently employing 60 members of Staff and with an annual turnover set to exceed £34 million, we understand the commitment needed for a sustained, continued growth and on-going investment.
By concentrating in one specific product area, Rudridge aim to compete in every respect. This means not only offering competitive rates, but also excellent stock availability and an efficient, prompt delivery service throughout London and the South-East. We are proud to have gained and established a reputation for providing the often missing 'user friendly' response and believe that customers prefer to do business with people they like and companies they trust. It is these basic trading values in particular, that ensure a high standard of service is consistently received.
