Established in 1850 as a timber importing business, we originally operated as Rawle & Gammon, from a site at Rolle Quay in Barnstaple. We have since grown considerably and are now one of the leading independent family owned merchants in the South West.

Today we employ over 300 staff, and whilst much of our business has changed and grown over the years, our core values of providing quality materials, developing a loyal customer base and having staff with the knowledge and necessary technical assistance to help all customers have remained constant.

Our 'A company well built' mantra runs through everything we do, and we're extremely proud of what RGB Building Supplies has developed into, but we're not resting on our laurels. Recently, we've opened a new branch in Dawlish to expand our plumbing & heating offering. This means we now operate out of 20 locations across Devon, Cornwall and Somerset.

We have also introduced The Room Works at our Bideford and Exeter branches and welcomed TecBuild to our portfolio, alongside RTD.

In addition to the wide range of heavyside and lightside building materials in stock at our branches, we also have dedicated kitchen, bathroom and bedroom showrooms offering a planning and design service, decorating centres which have paint mixing facilities and dedicated plumbing and heating branches.  This helps us ensure our trade and retail customers can find everything they need to complete the simplest DIY task, or erect a new building from the foundations, right through to the last touch of paint.

By opening new branches and showrooms, working with new suppliers, increasing ranges from existing partners, guaranteeing we always have high stock levels and developing our services, we're continuing to ensure RGB Building Supplies is the merchant of choice in the South West.
