THE opening of a new building material supply warehouse in Poole has created more than 50 jobs.

Virtually all of the staff for the new Selco Builders Warehouse branch, based at Fleets Corner Business Park, Waterloo Road, have been employed from Poole.

Selco chief executive Chris Cunliffe said: “I’m delighted to be bringing Selco to Poole.

“It will be of great benefit to the local economy and it is giving people the chance to join a company with fantastic opportunities for career progression.

“Selco’s recruitment policy has always been to employ those from the branch’s local community and that is continuing in Poole.

“Our aim is to give fantastic career opportunities to people, while allowing them to extend their skillset with us at Selco.”
