Strengthening its presence in the North of England, Minster is opening a brand-new branch in Leeds this week.

Ideally located to support the buoyant local construction industry, the 26,000 square foot outlet is located on a 2 acres site at Lake Terrace in Hunslet – adjacent to sister distributor Jewson Civils Frazer.

The opening is an important strategic expansion for the specialist insulation, dry lining, fire protection, façade, roofing and ceilings solutions distributor, amplifying its capacity to support projects across the entire Yorkshire area.

David Furlong, Regional Director at Minster said, “We’re really excited about the opening of our new Leeds branch and the opportunities it will create.  Construction in Leeds and the wider Yorkshire region is thriving and there is huge demand for our specialist solutions.  Having a central base in the area has been one of our strategic goals for some time and will enhance our ability to provide our unrivalled support and expertise to local projects.”

The opening of the new Leeds branch has created six new jobs in the area encompassing both commercial and driver roles, it increases the network of specialist Minster branches to 26 across England, Wales and Scotland.

David Furlong continues, “In terms of accessibility, the location of the Leeds branch is great, it is only 10 minutes from the city centre and is adjacent to the local motorway network. Being situated alongside Jewson Civils Frazer is another major plus. It will enhance our ability to collaborate with one another and service our shared customers more effectively supporting our growth ambitions.”
