The new branch is the third new opening in the last three years, with Rotherham and Hull building on the success of the original Scunthorpe branch.

The site consists of a 25,000ft2 warehouse, external yard and separate show room facilities, and will be a flagship branch for the company.

Due it its size and location along the M62 corridor, the site will act as a central distribution centre for BMC allowing it to feed goods throughout Yorkshire and north Lincolnshire efficiently and effectively.

“The new site will allow us to take the company to the next level, giving us an effective transport model throughout Yorkshire and the North,” said Duncan Thomson, managing director.

“This site outlines the results of our growth as a company over the last five years, and sets a marker for us moving forward on our development curve. I am so looking forward to seeing what Branch 5 has to offer!”

“Joining the National Buying Group (NBG) has given us the confidence, resource and clout to open such a large new greenfield site,” added Jane Thomson, finance director. “We are very excited with this new strategic company development.”
