April 2021 A supplement to builders merchants journal


In total, the companies listed in Trail Blazers employed 64,830 people on average in their latest financial periods. Counting back over the previous four years, the totals were 63,183, 62,571, 59,228 and 58,057. Those figures aren’t directly comparable, of course, because the companies included in the survey have changed – but even so, the trend points to rising employment, which is a clear sign of an industry in good shape.


Put it another way: exactly two-thirds of the companies listed (34) added staff in their latest financial period. At four, the headcount was unchanged, and only 13 reported a drop in numbers. Whether that trend will still be evident after a year of Covid-19 and Brexit… well, time will tell.


As usual, we can’t resist pointing out that close to half of those 64,830 people work for just one company: Travis Perkins. In fact TP employs more people than Jewson, Wolseley UK, Grafton Merchanting GB, Huws Gray, MKM, Bradford & Sons, UK Plumbing Supplies, Haldane Shiells, Nicholls & Clarke, Sydenhams, Howarth Timber Supplies, EH Smith, Lawsons, Covers, JT Atkinson, Builder Depot, LBS, Rawle Gammon & Baker, Lords, James Hargreaves, Grant & Stone, Williams, Elliott Bros, Parker Building Supplies, JT Dove and Joseph Parr combined.
