About Us


Frome Area Building Supplies Ltd is a long established business trading out of Rode for over 20 years. Owned By Andrew Fussell and Richard Cousins. We expanded into a second branch with our acquisition of Trowbridge Building Supplies Ltd in Feb 2021 and more recently we've expanded into Chippenham with the acquisition of Brunel building supplies in Dec 2021. Expanding our network to give great coverage to the area described below.
