Building materials and supplies company Selco is opening a branch in Filton, creating 50 jobs.

The Selco Builders Warehouse will open on Taurus Road, off Gypsy Patch Lane in Filton, at the end of May.

Selco, which already has a branch on Sheene Way in Bedminster, says “virtually all the jobs” are expected to be given to people in the local area.

The opening forms part of a major branch expansion programme across the UK, during which Selco will have doubled the size of its trade-only business over a five-year period.

Howard Luft, chief executive of Selco Builders Warehouse, said: “We’re thrilled to open branch number 65 – and seventh so far this year.

“Selco has undergone huge and rapid growth over the last five years and the plan is for that to continue.

“We are delighted to be strengthening our presence in the area with Bristol Filton. Our recruitment policy has always been to employ people from the branch’s local community and that is continuing here.

“We want to give people genuine career opportunities and the chance to climb through the ranks at Selco.”

The company says it hopes the branch will provide a “boost” to tradespeople in the area.

Luft added: “They will have a greater chance to enjoy the benefits Selco provides – unrivalled availability, with the widest range of products in stock, as well as excellent customer service and trade pricing.”

There will also be a café in branch as well as a 30-minute click and collect service, and an app (Project List), which allows tradespeople to plan, manage and quote for all jobs through their smartphone.
