Irish builders' merchanting and DIY company Grafton Group, which owns Woodie's DIY, has expanded further in the UK after completing the acquisition of T Brewer & Co Ltd.

T Brewer is a London based specialist timber business that trades from three branches in Clapham, Enfield and Amersham.

It generated revenue of approximately £14m (€19m) in 2015.

Grafton said the deal "extends coverage of the merchanting market in the London area and provides a further opportunity for the profitable growth of the group".

The company, which in Ireland owns the Woodies DIY and Atlantic Homecare chains, generated 75pc of its £2.08bn (€2.9bn) revenue in the UK in 2014.
