"From day one, our focus has been to supply high quality products and deliver the very best customer service, and this will never change"
On 1st May 2018, the doors opened for LMR Building Supplies on the outskirts of Hanslope village. Based in a farmyard and with a single pickup van, a forklift truck and a Portakabin for an office, our team back then was simply Paul, Chris and Sam.
Only three weeks later, we purchased our first lorry, affectionally known as "Cyril", and our first employee joined us in August of that year.
In early 2019 and now a team of six, it was clear we had outgrown our first home and needed to find somewhere bigger.
August 2019 saw us relocate to our current premises - a 1.5 acre site in Finedon with warehousing and a much bigger outdoor space, allowing us to significantly increase the number of product lines on offer.
By our second birthday in May 2020, our team had expanded to 13 people and grew even further as the year came to a close - no mean feat whilst the country was in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic.
We turned three years old in May 2021 and with our customer base growing by the day, we continued to develop our product and service offerings, and forged partnerships with a number of new suppliers.
2022 was another exciting year for LMR as we became members of NMBS & NBG. This was a huge milestone for the business as we continue to increase our product offering for our customers and further improve supplier relationships.
We're now a team of 16, with a fleet of five lorries and the same trusty pickup van that we started with back in 2018.
What's next? As the region's fastest-growing builders merchant, our ambitions are big. If you're interested in joining us on our journey, find out more here. In 2023, our principles remain the same, deliver the best service to our customers & offer solutions and product knowledge support through the sales office in line with our customers needs.
