Veteran Builders' Merchants

There aren’t many builders’ merchants that have been around as long as Boys & Boden.
Originally operating as a sawmill in Darlaston, Staffordshire; 
cousins, Henry Boys Boden and Frank Albert Boys officially founded the company in 1895.
Today, Boys & Boden has been honed into a specialist Builders’ Merchant, 
providing for both large scale trade jobs and small DIY projects.
