About South Lanarkshire Building Supplies
SLB is one of Scotland’s leading independent timber and builders’ merchants. As such we offer a reliable service backed by competitive prices and friendly staff. Established in 1997, we have been trading for more than 20 years and have developed a wealth of knowledge and expertise which is used to offer the best possible service to our customers. In 2019 SLB was acquired by Rodger Group, parent company of family-owned and run M&J Builders Merchants, a well established timber, building and landscaping materials merchant based in Inverclyde and Ayrshire.
As a leading builders’ merchant, our customers expect high levels of service and we're proud to say that at SLB this comes as standard. We endeavour to provide all our customers, big and small, with consistent levels of service, competitiveness and support. We believe that open discussions with our customers helps us understand how we can continually offer the best possible service. We are constantly monitoring market conditions to make sure we can offer the most competitive prices to all our customers.
Pricing is a conscious part of any business and we take it very seriously. We hate losing business and will strive to earn your loyalty and trust by offering keen and consistent prices every day. There will always be occasions where customers may be able to buy for less, but we will try our hardest to offer the best value for money where possible without compromising on quality. Cheap imports have never been prominent in our business and we'll always promote leading brands that we believe in. Cheap products often seem like good buys, but normally turn out to be a waste of money. We welcome the opportunity to price material for any of your up and coming projects. Simply pop in and see us with your list or drawings and we'll do our best to help. If you find it difficult to come and visit, you're more than welcome to contact us via Phone or Email.

H&B Buying Group
We are part of the ‘H&B Buying Group’ which has over 90 members across the U.K. This large buying group gives us the platform to access the buying prices of the multi nationals and being an independent merchant means we are in a position to pass them onto the customer whilst maintaining our independent service. H&B Buying Group has a combined annual turnover in excess of £1billion allowing us at SLB to be at the forefront of pricing and to have access to all the top brands and suppliers from the U.K and beyond.
We operate two 18 tonne hiab crane trucks as well as an express delivery vehicle ensuring a user friendly delivery service for you 6 days a week. Our wider Group runs with 7 delivery vehicles and so even in busy periods we have the flexibility to share resources to get the job done. All our delivery divers are trained to the highest standards ensuring a safe, speedy delivery to your home or site.
At SLB we don’t believe in standing still and we are always looking for new ways to improve our service and grow our business. Our branch at Larkhall recently completed a refurbishment of its large state-of-the-art showroom which is dedicated to showcasing many of the products that you would normally want to touch and feel before purchasing. Our paint department has recently been expanded to include a colour matching and mixing service to compliment our already wide selection of decorating materials. We have recently revamped our massive 600m2 external landscape display area to give you inspiration for your garden. We can offer you one to one appointments to help with your next project or simply stop by and a member of the team will always be on hand to assist you, should you need us.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
