Taylor Maxwell began selling building products from an office in Bristol in 1959. The business now operates from 18 UK offices and specialises in the supply of brick facades, cladding and timber products. It is led by managing director Martin Rudge, 50, and Anthony Hammond, 54, following a management buyout in 2006. Last year it acquired Surrey-based Pacific Lumber Services for an undisclosed sum. Improved market conditions helped lift sales by 31% to £183.5m.
