NEWS & COMMUNITY
We know that what makes us different from our competitors is the people we employ, the values we hold and the operational ethos that comes from having business roots in East Anglia, going back almost 200 years. In this section we wish to share some of the stories that define who we are; not just new joiners and company developments but also our role in the local community. We are pleased to support local sports teams, arts projects, wildlife associations, charities, colleges and schools, some with financial sponsorship but for most, donating materials for worthwhile projects as diverse as village signs, bunk beds for the homeless and bricks for Colchester’s Roman Circus.
Have a cuppa on Colliers! Builders’ Merchant Collier & Catchpole teams up with Butterworth & Son to make a Builders’ Brew.
Independent Builders’ Merchant Collier & Catchpole knows a thing or two about what builders want and that includes the fact that its customers’ daily routine would not be quite the same without a cup of tea or two. So when it came to thinking of some branded gifts to thank its regular visitors to its well-stocked yards in Colchester and Ipswich, it was not so much a matter of thinking “outside the box” but more about thinking “in the bag”.read more
