Established in 1982 PGR Builders and Timber Merchants has enjoyed sizeable growth and expansion and now operates from eight sites based at Braintree, Brentwood, Harold Hill, Laindon, Southend, Rayleigh and Romford all in Essex and Egham in Surrey.
All our staff undergo an extensive training programme, leading to excellent levels of expertise and retention. The benefits of this are clear as we are able to offer all our customers a personalised service that only years of experience can bring.
Health and Safety is at the forefront of every single PGR operation, which has lead to an exceptionally high track record. Drivers and yard staff receive regular training and briefings.
Our large fleet ranges from transit type vans to 14 ton crane off load vehicles, all of which are at least Euro 5 standard. Deliveries can usually be made within 24 hours.
PGR are now part of both The National Buying Group ( NBG ) and The National Merchants Buying Society ( NMBS ) . This provides the buying power to compete with the National Builders Merchants and allows us to keep our prices extremely competitive.
All the depots stock a vast range of building materials from bulk products such as aggregates, blocks, bricks and lintels to the small essential items including chemicals or tools. At both Egham and Rayleigh branches there is an Innovative Showroom, including comprehensive brick libraries. So if you are looking for a bespoke Eco friendly product or to match a brick please drop in to see us.
In line with PGR’s environmental policy all eight of our depots have achieved full FSC® and PEFC chain of custody certification which ensures our Timber and Sheet materials have been produced from well-managed forests and are sourced responsibly. Quality is high on the priority list for our timber products but without an adverse effect on cost. All our depots offer cutting facilities and our aim is to keep the majority of timbers under cover away from the elements.
PGR Lofts are the complete loft conversion service. With the highly specialist Loft Lifter vehicle we are able to deliver all your materials directly to the roof. Whether it is insulation, steel or timbers, our high extending crane can deliver all in one go to the most inaccessible places.
Whether you are trade or retail we will enjoy welcoming you to our branches.
