As of the 1st September 2022, Galaxy became an employee owned business with the creation of the Galaxy Employee Trust which secured a majority shareholding in the business. The restructuring of the business will ensure long-term legacy by maintaining the integrity, continuity, culture and values of Galaxy. We are people focused and believe that giving our employees a vested interest in the company will have a positive impact on achieving our future aspirations.
Galaxy Insulation and Dry Lining was established in 2009, with warehouses situated in Sheffield and Leeds, owned and managed by a highly dedicated and motivated team with years of Construction Industry experience. The ongoing success of these two branches, saw a new Northwest site at Haydock open in September 2016, and a Birmingham Branch in April 2017.
September 2018 saw the successful completion of a management buyout, and 2019 heralded Galaxy’s first venture into the south with branches opening in West and East London, followed by new locations in West Bromwich and Bedford during 2020.
2021 saw 5 new Galaxy dots on the map during the year with Newcastle upon Tyne, Bristol, Swansea, Nottingham and Tonbridge opening and Galaxy completing their first acquisition with Hush Acoustic Products joining the group in October.
With so much of the UK now covered, the new Glasgow Branch which opened in January 2023, should complete our expansion for the moment, although, when the opportunity arose in 2022, to increase the size of our warehouses at the Sheffield and West Bromwich branches we took it, as this will allow us to continually improve our service levels at those locations.
Our continued growth has allowed, a now Employee owned Galaxy to become a market leading insulation supplier, being named as one of the 100 fastest growing founder led companies in the UK and enabled us to build strong relationships with leading Dry Lining and Insulation manufacturers.
