About Bence

We are Gloucestershire's leading independent builders merchant, with a fleet of vehicles covering a radius of approximately forty miles from our base in Cheltenham's town centre.     The location is easy to call in and collect from and all customers are welcome, trade and retail.

Established in 1854, we maintain traditional high standards of customer service while embracing the latest technology - horses and carts have given way to a fleet that includes modern six-wheel crane lorries as well as specialised vehicles for delivering fragile items like bathroom suites.

We may have deep roots in the past however we continue to move forwards, with our fabulous award-winning showroom Obsidian, which showcases the best in kitchens and bathrooms from the world's top manufacturers and state-of-the-art technology to further improve our high standards of customer service.

From national housebuilders to DIY, Landscaping to Eco sustainable technologies, Kitchens to Bathrooms, whatever your building requirements are - we can deliver.
