About the employer

Our main aim from day one has been to look after our customers by offering an excellent level of customer service, combined with friendly sales staff, high quality workmanship and, of course, very competitive prices. Our commitment to our customers has resulted in a high level of people returning to us again and again; we then knew we had the right strategy. With this in mind we opened our second depot in Beverley, followed by Willerby (West Hull), then South Orbital (Hull). This meant we could offer the people and businesses of the city of Hull and surrounding areas a depot close to them. After our depots in Hull became established, we then opened Scunthorpe and Grimsby, and continued our philosophy of excellent customer care. Most recently our two depots in Sheffield were opened and Howden followed shortly after that. We plan to continue expanding within our existing region, but we’re not growing just to be the biggest; we intend to remain a company that offers excellent value for money to our customers and be small enough to care yet big enough to offer some of the best deals around.
