Huws Gray from UK acquires structural timber specialist

Private equity-backed builders’ merchant Huws Gray has acquired AC Roof Trusses, a Welshpool business.

Established in 1982, AC Roof Trusses specialises in the design, production and supply of structural timber components. It employs more than 30 people.

Huw Grays is headquartered in Anglesey and has more than 100 branches across Wales and England.

“We are very pleased to be able to announce the acquisition of AC Roof Trusses,” said Osian Jones, truss and easi-joist development manager for the Huws Gray Group.

“The company is very well known and respected for its expertise and service. It’s going to be a very exiting period for everyone involved.

“We are very much looking forward to building on the success of both of the roof truss manufacturing locations and utilising the expanded Huws Gray Group branch network to distribute products to our customer base across the country.”

Tom Jones, managing director for AC Roof Trusses, added: “On behalf of the directors and all employees we are very proud to be joining the Huws Gray Group.

“Recent years have shown exceptional growth where we have worked closely with Huws Gray and grown to be a reliable and trusted supplier of engineered timber structures which include timber frame wall panels, posi-joists, roof trusses and spandrel panels.

“With the current management structure being retained we are hugely excited for the future to working with the rest of the Huws Gray Group, opening doors to new opportunities and building on the success the company has had in recent years.”

The timing of the acquisition comes just as Huws Gray Group nears the completion of the refurbishment of most of the Ridgeons branches (now trading as Huws Gray Ridgeons) across East Anglia.
