A FAMILY-owned north Shropshire builders’ merchants firm has been shortlisted for three prestigious national awards.

The Tudor Griffiths Group, which has bases in Oswestry and Ellesmere, has been named as a finalist in three categories at this year’s Builders’ Merchants Awards.

It is shortlisted for; the Kitchen and Bathroom Showroom of the Year, Community Initiative of the Year and the Builders’ Merchant of the Year (six to 20 branches).

TG Builders’ Merchants general manager, Mark Evans, for the company, is pleased to see the firm on the shortlist for multiple awards.

He said: “It’s a real honour to have been shortlisted in not just one, but three categories, and we’re so proud of our team to have secured those finalist positions.

“This year’s competition will be very different from previous years as everything will take place online, but we’re really excited about watching the event together and finding out whether we’ve taken the titles.

“The judges have said entries for the 2021 competition have led to ‘some of the highest calibre finalists they had ever seen’, so we’re keeping our fingers crossed that we beat off the competition.”

The awards are organised by Builders’ Merchants News magazine in partnership with the Builders’ Merchants Federation.

TG Builders’ Merchants has been successful in the Builders’ Merchants Awards before, taking the title for best Kitchen and Bathrooms Showroom for its Oswestry branch in 2019.

It has 20 full-sized kitchen and bathroom displays inside the 220sqm store that has been created following a restructure of the existing buildings.

The winners will be announced at an online ceremony on Friday, May 14.
