JP Corry Expands Into Newry

Northern Ireland's leading builders' merchant, JP Corry, has acquired Phoenix Merchants, the local merchant branch for the Newry trade professional.

Builders in the Newry area will benefit from JP Corry's product range, service excellence and commitment to sustainable construction.

The addition of the Newry branch reinforces the strong and healthy network of JP Corry branches across Northern Ireland. It brings the total of JP Corry branches in the Province to 15. This means that trade professionals, specifiers and self builders are never far away from JP Corry's expert advice, a range of solutions and friendly service.

Experienced branch manager, Kieran Quinn, will head up JP Corry's Newry branch. Kieran was previously based at JP Corry in Portadown. With a 'business as usual' approach to ensure all customers continue to receive excellent service, the handover between Phoenix Merchants and JP Corry will be supervised by Managing Director Stephen Megarry.

"We are delighted to have acquired this reputable company in Newry," said Richard Whiteside, JP Corry Operations Director Ireland. "It will allow us to improve the service and range of products we can offer to our many customers in the area."
