Cupa Group acquires Rinus Roofing Supplies

  • 3 Mar 2021

Cupa Group, the world’s leading producer of premium natural slate, has announced it has acquired 100% of the share capital of Rinus Roofing Supplies, through its subsidiary Burton Roofing Merchants. 

The transaction consolidates Burton’s position as the largest independent specialist distributor of roofing materials in the UK and increases Cupa’s exposure to the attractive UK roofing materials market.

Led by Paul Hattee, UK Managing Director, Burton will now operate 37 distribution centres nationwide, becoming an increasingly important partner for the construction industry.

Rinus, a family-owned business founded in 2007, is the second largest independent distributor of roofing products in the UK, employs 184 people and has a portfolio of more than 2,600 clients. 

Rinus owns 24 branches nationwide and provides full product coverage across all roofing applications. It maintains an extensive network of relationships with established UK suppliers, giving the company access to the latest product development in the industry.

Javier Fernández, CEO of Cupa Group, commented: “We are excited to welcome Rinus to the Cupa family. We were attracted to the company given its strong track-record and solid market position in the UK which place it in a solid position to further expand its presence and continue its growth trajectory.

“We look forward to working together to deliver Cupa’s ambitious growth plans, strengthening our product range and expanding our international footprint.”

The acquisition of Rinus is the third transaction in the last three months by Cupa, following the acquisitions of Pizarras Gallegas in December 2020 and Proinor in February 2021.
