Welcome to Ridgeons, one of the largest independently owned timber and builders’ merchants in the UK, employing around 900 colleagues and trading from 26 local branches in the East of England.

Our mission has stayed the same since 1911 when Cyril Ridgeon founded the business in the back room of his home in Cambridge – to make it easier for our customers to do business.

With an extensive breadth and depth of product stock from bricks, timber and paints to kitchens, bathrooms and plumbing/heating solutions we have the solution to meet all sizes of building project requirements. Our teams take enormous pride in helping customers identify and fulfil their building needs and are passionate in their knowledge and understanding of the products and services we supply.

The Ridgeon Group customers today are tradespeople, including builders, plumbers and heating engineers. We also serve the needs of major construction companies, regional house builders, property developers, public sector organisations and the DIY market.

As well as Ridgeons Timber & Builders Merchants, the Group encompasses PlumbStock, which is dedicated to plumbing and heating; Ridgeons Forest Products, our timber processing team based at the 12 acre Herringswell site; Anglia Tool Centre, specialist sellers of hand power tools and CRS Wholesale, a bathroom and sanitary ware wholesaler.

We remain proud of our continued heritage as a family-owned business and are driven by our values in creating lasting relationships with our customers, colleagues, suppliers and the local communities where we live and trade.

We look forward to doing business with you.
