Travis Perkins is set to relocate from its existing site at Goosemoor Lane, Erdington to a bigger location at Forge Lane, Minworth and is set to open to customers from 1st September.

As part of the relocation, Travis Perkins is recruiting for ten new roles, in addition to transferring 13 colleagues to the new site. The roles include full-time positions for a branch supervisor, a Toolhire Fitter Driver and a HGV Class 2 driver, while part-time and flexible roles include two Customer Yard Assistant positions and a Counter Sales position.

Branch manager Mark Burns says “We’re looking forward to opening the doors of our brand new branch in September. The new site has more than doubled in size, will be open for longer hours and includes a Tool Hire section. Recruiting more colleagues to join our experienced team means we’ll be able to add to the expert knowledge and advice that serves our local community.”

The new site is 2.25 acres in size and is close to the M6, serving Minworth, Sutton Coldfield and Erdington.

The branch will feature a tools and plant hire section, up to 50 different types of bricks and an extensive landscaping display.  Boasting  extensive bricks, timber and blocks, it offers a fast and convenient one hour click and collect service and next day delivery.

Customers can choose to shop online, in branch or by using the new Travis Perkins app. The industry-first app has been designed in conjunction with customers to help them save time and work smarter by managing their account on the go. Customers can shop online and easily manage their trade account, wherever they are.
