Troy is delighted to announce the acquisition of SIIS Limited to support its UK growth strategy and its second acquisition in Scotland in 2024.

SIIS specialise in ironmongery and industrial supplies and serve a wide range of customers across Scotland and the UK from their four sites located in Kirkcaldy, Dundee, Dunfermline and Edinburgh.

Troy, the largest independent network for industrial and engineering supplies in the UK, is headed up by Paul Kilbride, CEO. Paul commented;

“SIIS is a Troy member that is built on family values with a focus on serving its local communities and is a natural fit with the Troy Group. Through our vertical integration strategy, we provide businesses like SIIS with support and investment to grow and further unlock their potential, maintaining the knowledge, passion and levels of customer service that only an independent business can provide. We look forward to starting this journey with Grant and the team.”
