THE friendly folk at Fairview Builders Merchants move heaven and quite a lot of earth to ensure the best for their customers.
Construction materials, timber and garden landscaping products are their specialities but customers visit the single site Worcestershire yard for so much more than that.
Sand and gravel, block paving, cement, bricks, roof tiles, plasterware, nails, asphalt and thermal blocks are only part of a very long list of stock.
No wonder Fairview is the first choice for trade customers and members of the public throughout the Vale of Evesham.
It’s now a world away from the fledgling business which started in 1974 as a small yard in Cheltenham selling reclaimed building materials. A decade on from its launch, the company had expanded to selling new building materials alongside reclaimed ones. As it continued to grow a second yard was acquired at Buckle Street, Honeybourne.
Managing Director Stuart Bailey explained: “We took this yard from being used primarily for holding stock, and built it into a successful, independent builder’s merchants in its own right and we feel this transformation is one of the family firm’s biggest successes.”
By 2000, Fairview had outgrown its original Cheltenham site and so that was sold for the company to concentrate on growing and developing the Honeybourne base.
“Our greatest challenge has always been to remain competitive without compromising quality, and giving customers a service that is second to none,” says Stuart.
“But thanks to our massive stocks of sand, gravels, and decorative aggregates we are confident that, assisted by our knowledgeable and friendly staff, they will find the right building supplies at the right price. “Add to this our range of blocks, slabs, posts and fencing supplies along with the tools to do the job and all you need in drainage and ancillary building supplies and you will see why we are the number one choice for many builders, contractors and the public in the Vale.”
It leads the way in supplying traditional building supplies, but Fairview is quick to become a modern supplier with a strong online presence via social media presence through Twitter (@fairviewtrading) and Facebook ,
For those who can visit, Fairview is open Mondays-Fridays, 8am-5pm and on Saturdays from 8am until mid-day
