Growth & Resilience

From settling in Darwen's heart during the efficiency boom of the 1920s to navigating the challenges at Duckworth Street, our resilience has been our cornerstone.

Our quest for expansion led us to the spacious Wood Street, allowing us to diversify our offerings beyond just ironmongery.
