Plumb Center owner Wolseley, which has its headquarters in Leamington Spa, is set to axe up to 800 jobs.
It's part of a restructuring programme that will see it shut 80 branches and a distribution centre. The shake-up will cost the firm £100 million.
The group employs 6,000 people in the UK and operates across 750 branches.
The closure of around 80 branches and one distribution centre is expected to lead to up to 800 job losses, the impact of which we will minimise through redeployment and attrition as far as possible.
The programme is subject to consultation which will commence shortly and is expected to take 90 days.
