M&J roofing supplies ltd are a family run business and take pride that we are a local independent. The Bridgman family before setting up a roofing supplies business where originally local contractors. Torch on membranes at this point where very new and as such not available in the UK market. After a trip to a famous German roofing exhibition the owner saw torch on membranes being promoted. From seeing this Michael decided to start buying torch on membranes directly from Italy (world renown for quality roofing and tanking membranes and associated products). Michael was one of, if not the first person to bring torch on the UK.
Being a contractor he was using the products himself. However, after being asked continually about the membranes from other roofers Michael decided to start selling torch on membranes to other local roofers. The premises was his garage attached to his house. As demand started to escalate Michaels garage become busier and busier. After a complaint from a neighbour regarding the amount of vans in Michaels road Michael was asked to stop selling goods from his garage by the local council or find a more suitable premises to do so. The Bridgman family stopped contracting, found a local premises in Tongham and thus M&J was born.
From these humble grass roots beginnings M&J have built a reputation built on quality products, knowledgeable staff, great pricing points and outstanding customer service within the roofing community. From the original background of being a roofing contractor, Michael understood the need for all staff to have knowledge of roofing as a whole but also to build a very strong base of technical knowledge for all staff.
Since its start M&J have been supplying the roofing trade in the south for well over 20 years and will continue to do so. As a family run company we remain proactive to the market, secure stocks of available products especially though the testing times during the covid pandemic.
Since the pandemic hit M&J remained open only shutting for 3 days in total. We proved to the market and local trade we are here to help, to keep the country motivated and moving, keeping the economy buoyant, serving the community and securing as much stocks as was possible from all suppliers. All of this was done during one of the most testing times in a generation. Whilst multi nationals remained shut reducing there staff to furlough, whilst other independents shut completely, reduced hours or shut certain branches M&J remained open. M&J and its entire staff are very proud of this fact and continue to serve the local community.
