It is made up of Haldane Fisher NI, Haldane Fisher Isle of Man, Haldane Fisher UK, GE Robinson, Key Hardware, Plumbmaster and Bathline.
Still, a family owned business the Company have come a long way since its origins in the centre of Newry in 1946 by Bob Haldane. From these modest beginnings the Company has expanded to 19 branches across the UK employing over 600 people. The key factor in our growth has been the skill and commitment of our workforce, many of whom have been with the company for 20, 30 and even 40+ years. The business has grown organically and through acquisition but it still retains the high levels of personal service one would associate with a family run business.
