Top Track 250

This Anglesey builders’ merchant trades from more than 100 locations across England and Wales — all of which it closed in March as lockdown began. Implementing safety measures and collection for pre-orders enabled the group to reopen stores the following month. In March, managing director Terry Owen, 58, also snapped up AC Roof Trusses for an undisclosed sum, continuing a buy-and-build strategy that saw sales reach £378.5m in 2019.
