Harrow to get the ‘Trade Only’ treatment

Published:  09 June, 2016

Williams & Co, the Southern-based independent, trade-only plumbing and heating wholesaler, is opening another store in early July, bringing its total number of branches to 31.

Conveniently located on the Whitefriar’s Industrial Estate, the new branch in Harrow is the latest addition as part of the company's continuing expansion plan. This has increased the network of outlets in and around Greater London, offering wider coverage for the tradespeople working in the area.

Managing director Ray Stafford said: “I am delighted to be able to bring our traditional, independent service to Harrow and surrounding areas, offering transparent pricing on popular brands to the trade.”

The independent merchant was founded in 1972 and was recently recognised by the London Stock Exchange as being “one of the 1,000 most inspiring businesses in the UK”.

The company specialises in supplying self-employed tradesmen and small independent businesses from its 31 branches across the South East, as well as nationally from its e-commerce platform www.tradeonlyplumbing.co.uk.
