You may have heard that the Home Timber and Hardware Group have been acquired by the Metcash Group, which also owns Mitre 10. Both groups are similar businesses, strongly committed to their brands, their customers and supporting the growth of the independent hardware market. The acquisition represents a merger of two successful
independent hardware groups and will deliver significant scale and growth for the combined business. The objective is to continue to build up successful independents and support and grow a vibrant independent hardware sector for the long term.
Aaron Acheson, from Acheson’s Timber and Hardware said: “This will enable us to have a better range of products at a better price due to the increased number of stock items we will be carrying. It is business as usual here at the store – we are open every day of the week.”
