Wolseley has been very active recently with the refocusing of the group after the sale of Encon and Build Center. They are now concentrating on their core business. This has resulted in the refurbishment of their branches and the introduction of new stock ranges and information resources for their customers in store.
Wolseley UK managing director Steve Ashmore said of the sale: "Wolseley has taken a strategic view in deciding to sell Bathstore. We believe it is a positive move for Bathstore and its employees and offers the best way forward for them, with an owner that is fully focused on the High Street retail market.
"It is also a positive move for Wolseley going forward as we can concentrate entirely on our core businesses, delivering growth by providing exceptional service and access to our products through a range of channels, including our branch network and online."
