Humber hosts 40th anniversary trade show

Published:  13 August, 2012

SCUNTHORPE: Humber Merchants hosted its 40th anniversary trade show last month and entertained over 150 customers and staff.

The evening was well supported by suppliers like Makita; Metabo; Bosch; Toolbank; Progressive Footwear; Carlisle Brass; Strand Hardware; Kirkpatrick, Reisser; Klingspor; Wera; Tremco; Ingersoll Rand and Bostik.

"From modest beginnings in 1972, Humber Merchants has grown into a company which has become the first port of call for many companies throughout the area," said chief executive Ray Brammall.

"The business has been built on a strong foundation of personal service coupled with a commitment to provide customers the benefit of help and advice offered by experienced knowledgeable staff.

"We have never considered our customers to be merely numbers on an invoice, but rather people and individuals with whom the staff continue to establish excellent working relationships, after all the best prices in the world won't keep customers if your service is appalling."

Over the past 40 years Humber Merchants has grown into a business with five outlets with branches in Scunthorpe, Immingham, Doncaster and Hull. The Hull operation was acquired in 1996 when the purchase of Industrial Supplies (Hull), brought a strong customer base North of the Humber.
