Travis Perkins Oban

Travis Perkins, which is part of Travis Perkins plc and is the UK’s largest distributor of materials to the construction sector, is relocating from Soroba Road to a new branch at Glenshellach Business Park on Monday 23rd of October.

The new Oban branch boasts a hard landscaping display and paint mixing service. Customers will also have greater choice when it comes to trading; be it in branch or online by using the industry leading Travis Perkins App. The App has been collaboratively developed with customers to help them not only work smarter, but also to save time by allowing them to check stock on the go from their local branch and order instantly with their personal trade prices. 

Alternatively, customers can also use the fast and convenient one hour Click & Collect service, as well as a Branch Delivery Tracking Service, which gives customers the best possible delivery notifications in real-time without having to make a telephone call.

These innovative ways to trading are designed to save customers time; something which is reported as their biggest pain-point. Combined, these provide a one-stop personalised experience, whether on the move, on site, in-branch - whenever and wherever they need it. 

As part of Travis Perkins' commitment to minimise carbon emissions by 90% this the site will include electric forklift trucks. This innovation will help to deliver on its ambition of decarbonizing its fleet and becoming a net-zero carbon producer.

Branch Manager, Chris Agg says about the re-location, “We’re really excited to be re-opening our doors to the tradespeople and builders of Oban, and our nine-strong team will continue to do what matters for the trade. This branch will have everything they need, when and where they need it, and will deliver them value, convenience and consistency in a more sustainable branch. We’re looking forward to welcoming and supporting all of our customers with choice, quality, and brilliant service day-in, day-out and offer a fantastic delivery and collection service that doesn’t compromise them on time.”
