With branches now open in Crawley and Luton and more planned for 2013, Minster has moved into the roofing and roofline marketplace.

The new brand takes Minster Group firmly into the domestic roofing market. The Minster Group Marketing Director, Nick Ratcliffe, will be heading up the new business, where he will be supported by Paul Maidment, Minster Roofing & Roofline Commercial Director.  The management team is made up of some of the best people within roofing distribution, representing many years of collective knowledge and expertise gathered within the roofing and wider construction sectors.

The company will serve specialist and roofing contractors, fabricators and builders merchants, offering specialist distribution of major brands supplying: pitch and flat roofing – including tiles, slates and metals; fascias and guttering; roofing insulation; decking and trusses.

The launch marks a major development of the Minster Group. Throughout its rapid growth in the past few years Minster has retained its focus on specialist distribution and continues to build on the strong foundation of its core markets of Insulation and Dry Lining. In the past year Minster has successfully added a Ceilings offer to its portfolio, and there will be more to come – particularly with the increased demand for products such as external wall insulation, driven by the Government’s Green Deal and ECO initiatives.

Chris Whitlock, Managing Director of the Minster Group said: “This expansion represents an exciting opportunity. Minster Roofing and Roofline will give roofers more choice. The mix of expertise, innovative product solutions and helpful, knowledgeable staff mean the business is well positioned to bring added value to its customers.”
