About us

Tamar Trading Building Supplies is a family-run independent business and has been a builders’ merchant supplying materials across Devon and Cornwall for more than 50 years. We have three branches, located in Holsworthy, Torrington and Bodmin, which stock over 20,000 different products, catering for all your building needs.

We opened our first builders' merchants in Holsworthy at Sawmills Yard in the 1950s supplying building materials to the construction and agricultural industries in Torridge and North Devon. Building ourselves a satisfied customer base in the area, we took pride in our ability to meet their requirements as swiftly and efficiently as we can, a company ethic we still carry close to us today, over 60 years later.

Over time, the company expanded to open a new branch in Torrington which supplied direct to trade and retail customers across North and Mid Devon, further expanding our customer base and allowing us to further accomodate builders as they moved from site to site across the county. Torrington is also home to our original Kitchen and Bathroom Showroom where we have an extensive range of the newest and most popular products from some of the UK's leading manufacturers.

In 2014, Tamar Trading Building Supplies opened its first branch in Cornwall on the Cooksland Industrial Estate, Bodmin further expanding its range of services and delivery areas. The opening of the Bodmin branch has been highly successful and our staff are kept busy ensuring builders across the Duchy receive the products they require on time and at the best prices. 


Our latest development is the opening of our Bodmin Kitchen and Bathroom Showroom in autumn 2016, a state of the art facility allowing us to inspire customers with both modern and traditional designs and to illustrate what they might expect from their own homes, should they choose our dedicated design team to create their new kitchen or bathroom. Pop into our Bodmin branch on Cooksland Industrial Estate to see for yourself, you won't be disappointed!

We still have our own fleet of delivery vehicles, with several lorries and vans stationed at each branch, able to deliver building materials direct to sites across Devon and Cornwall with a next day delivery option available for most stocked items. Our delivery drivers are friendly and professional and take pride in accomodating customer requirements wherever and whenever they can.

Our staff here at Tamar Trading are drawn from all over Devon and Cornwall and collectively have an excellent knowledge of the building trade, developed over years working within our organisation and backgrounds in skilled trades, including Carpenters, Electricans and Plumbers.
