GRP Solutions Ltd is delighted to announce its acquisition of Glasgow-based Allscot Distributors Ltd, the sole stockists of glass fibre materials and all related sundry products in Scotland. The Allscot business is one of the UK’s oldest distribution businesses and operates from a 15,000 sq. ft facility, including offices and a successful trade counter.
This acquisition nearly doubles our warehouse capacity and will allow us to be closer to our customers in Scotland and the North of England. With a more local presence, we also look forward to a more sustainable future with carbon emission reductions in our road freight. The portfolio of products that GRP Solutions and Allscot offer will also widen.
Brian Harpur, Managing Director of GRP Solutions, states, “We look forward to strengthening Allscot and investing in the facility and to making Scotland a high growth area for our business. For me it is an immensely proud occasion as Allscot is located two miles north of where my mother was born, but also for the fact that we continue to strengthen our business by “Doing the right thing”. Investing in composites, being closer to our customers and offering world class service. We have also started
our support of local communities by making a donation to the Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice who provide palliative care to people in and around Glasgow.”
