Parker Merchanting in Rainham Road South welcomed prospective customers from across the borough, including representatives from Barking and Dagenham Council.

Currently based in the company’s Leeds office, national operations manager Pete Clarney, 49, hopes the Dagenham shop will become the company’s flagship store within a few years.

He said: “It’s in a great location right on the main road and with our other partner business nearby it can be a one-stop shop for customers.

“A good few thousand pounds have been spent on the store’s facelift and it’s a really attractive place to trade.”

A leading UK distributor of construction consumables, covering personal protective equipment, roadworks and site supplies, the Dagenham store will cover all of east London.
