Today we announced our acquisition of Cambridge Roof Truss. The strategic acquisition has an excellent geographic fit with our present business and will further supplement our existing product offering across the Southern and Midland regions of the UK.
In extending our geographical footprint, it ensures that wherever our customers are, we are on their doorstep; providing the best in quality and local service with a national distribution network.
Established in 2014, Cambridge Roof Truss limited (CRTL) designs, manufactures and supplies roof trusses, joists and spandrel panels to leading housebuilders and construction companies in the UK. The company has built a reputation for being a marketing led, sales driven business with a renowned customer service ethos, and it is this professionalism and dedication to the client that makes the CRTL team a compelling fit with the DTE family. The Board of Directors at CRTL felt that strategically the time was right to secure the future of the company, knowing that DTE has the infrastructure needed to continue to satisfy its growing customer base.
Cambridge Roof Truss Managing Director, Jack McMinn said: “I am very proud of the reputation we have built, and for putting our customers and the service we provide to them at our core. By joining forces with DTE, we can offer a broader set of manufacturing capabilities with the resource and operational experience necessary to fully support our customers.”
Sue Mills, Sales & Marketing Director for CRTL will take on the role of branch manager, leading a team of 29 staff. With an investment plan already in place, the branch can potentially double its production output in the new year.
