Shoreheat supplies heating spares to the trade, local authorities, housing associations and the National Health Service and the buy-out will increase its number of branches to 18 covering the South, Midlands and North West.
Graeme Holton, managing director of Progress Group, commented: “The acquisition will extend the reach of our Shoreheat branches into West Yorkshire and the surrounding areas. “It is our intention to continue the growth of the business in the future. This growth will be based upon quality rather than quantity of branches.
“We have become established as a specialist supplier with over 14,000 product lines. What sets our business apart is our emphasis on product knowledge, availability and reliability.
“Our regional manager Keith Twiddle and his team will continue to provide customers with the excellent service that they’ve become accustomed to.”
Progress Group is part of the Grafton Group.
