LONDON (Alliance News) - Building merchanting and DIY business Grafton Group PLC Monday said it has acquired Direct Builders Merchants Ltd, a general merchanting business trading from three branches in Kent.

The company did not say how much it paid for the business.

Grafton said this bolt-on-acquisition, which had revenue of GBP4.8 million in the financial year to December 31, 2013, improves the group's coverage of the merchanting market in Kent and the South East of England.
