The W.Howard Group has announced it has become a National Merchant Buying Society supplier member.

The Manchester-based company manufactures and supplies white primed, real wood veneered, and foil wrapped MDF profiles, such as skirting, architraves, window boards, and door linings.

It celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2018, and remains a family-run business, led by Chairman Jonathan Grant.

Group Commercial Director Simon Fleet said: “We are thrilled to be joining NMBS at such an exciting time in our company’s growth and development.

“Becoming an NMBS supplier partner will allow us to better support our independent merchant customers, and we are looking forward to attending the NMBS Exhibition and talking to merchants about our new core range.”

NMBS Heavyside Trading Manager Paul Andrews said: “We are pleased to welcome W.Howard Group.

“Their strong business ethos of supporting the independent merchant sector, coupled with innovative product development and bespoke design, can drive further benefits for all parties involved, and we look forward to a successful partnership in the future."

W.Howard will also be attending the 2019 Irish Hardware Show in Dublin on 17 and 18 February, showcasing its KOTA range of MDF mouldings.
