Tuesday, Apr 05

IBMG’s electrical division is pleased to announce the opening of its latest Grant & Stone
electrical wholesaler located on Western Road, Bracknell.


The 5000sq ft site will stock a wide range of products to meet the needs of domestic and
commercial electricians. The new branch increases the divisions geographic reach, along
with the recent opening of a new branch every week for the past five weeks. The list of new electrical wholesalers includes Grant & Stone Acton, Grant & Stone Romford, Grant & Stone Brentwood and Grant & Stone Swindon, further strengthening IBMG’s electrical division as the largest independent wholesaler in the South of England.


The Bracknell branch is located between the M4 and M3 corridors and is situated directly on a main route from Camberley in Surry and Reading in Berkshire, making it convenient for customers with projects in London and the surrounding areas, as well as customers with projects further west from London.


Branch manager John Ward said: “We aim to make Grant & Stone Bracknell the preferred
electrical wholesaler in the Bracknell area, and to be the first choice for customers. We pride ourselves on our excellent service, and with over 100 years combined experience, it’s our knowledge and expertise that sets us apart. We have a broad range of products to meet our customers’ needs, and we can draw from a network of 25 electrical wholesalers when needed. We are committed to creating a great work environment for the Bracknell team to grow and benefit from the many career opportunities within our business, ensuring that we retain the very best specialist skills and people.”


Darren House, managing director of IBMG’s electrical division, added: “Grant & Stone have a strong presence from Enfield through to Paignton which has been strengthened even further with five new electrical wholesaler sites opening in the past five weeks. The
experienced team of specialists at Bracknell are led by John Ward, a great local manager
who has over 32 years’ experience in electrical wholesaling. John has in depth knowledge of the local market and fully understands our customers’ needs. As a Group, we continue to remain fiercely independent in our approach, outlook and dealings with customers as this is the reason for our continued success.”


The Bracknell team are exploring programmes that support students currently training to be electricians at the Bracknell & Wokingham College.


The opening of the new Bracknell branch increases the network of IBMG’s specialist electrical wholesale branches to 26 across the South of England. Grant & Stone Bracknell is located at Unit 2, Trade City, Western Road, Bracknell, RG12 1FJ and will be open six days a week from 7am to 5.15pm Monday to Friday and 8am – 12pm Saturday.
