The Paint Shed Joins Brewers
Scottish merchant The Paint Shed has been acquired by Brewers, bringing together two of the largest UK independent paint retailers.
The Paint Shed has 20 stores across Scotland as well as an online store, and employs 87 people. Brewers is the UK’s largest independent decorator’s merchant with 193 stores across England and Wales.
The Paint Shed will continue to operate as a standalone subsidiary of The Brewers Group. The Paint Shed sees the opportunity for 5-10 more store openings across Scotland and has not ruled out further growth by acquisition.
Ogilvie Rolland, Executive Chairman of the Paint Shed, said: “I am delighted to see the company join forces with Brewers. As another business with strong family roots, their values and culture mirrors our own, and will be a fantastic fit. It is our amazing people that have built such a successful company, I can’t thank them enough for their contribution and commitment over the years, and I wish the team every success going forward.”
Simon Brewer, CEO of Brewers said: “Ogilvie, Michael, and The Paint Shed team have built an incredible business, with great progress made over the last few years despite a challenging environment. The culture and values they have instilled in their business reflect those that matter most to us and that is why this coming together is most exciting.”
