For the second successive year, builders' merchant Selco won a Superbrands gold award in 2020. The award made the brand analysis and review company is based on quality, reliability, and distinction.

New initiatives at Selco impressed the judges, including its continuing expansion of services and its branch network, its response to keeping customers and staff safe during the pandemic, and a new long-term sustainability strategy, including the creation of the first Selco Forest. The company has bought two forests in Scotland and Wales and plans to plant trees to offset the carbon emissions created by deliveries.

Selco's Marketing Director, Carine Jessamine said: “We are thrilled to have been recognised as a Superbrand for the second successive year and it’s testament to the hard work and dedication of the entire Selco team.

“The pandemic has provided a difficult backdrop across all sectors over the last 18 months, but the resilience of the business and all colleagues has come to the fore and enabled Selco to continue to develop in all areas.

“Receiving recognition through awards such as Superbrands is just a reward for the efforts of everyone to grow the Selco name.”

Selco started as a family business in 1985 and is now a nationwide brand within the Grafton Group, with more than 70 builders' merchant warehouses for trade customers across England and Wales. Each branch stocks more than 15,000 projects.

Online and in branches, the chain offers a variety of services, including next-day free delivery, sheet-cutting, brick-matching, paint mixing, project lists, and account management.
