Old Acton Building Firm Changes Hands
Lawsons takes over Poores of Acton
An Acton family firm which has been trading for nearly 200 years has been sold.
Poores, based in Colville Road in W3, and Chorleywood, Hertfordshire, supplies building and decorating materials. The Poore family have been in the business since 1820.
The company has now been sold to Lawsons - the largest independent supplier of timber, building and fencing materials in London and the south east.
Lawsons managing director Joe Inzani says that the two sites represent "an excellent opportunity for Lawsons to continue to grow its network of branches in strategic locations in and around the M25."
