Who we are
The Haldane Group is one of the leading independent suppliers to the construction industry in the UK and Ireland, serving both trade customers and the general public. 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 grow organically and through the acquisition but it still retains the high levels of personal service one would associate with a family run business.
We are predominantly a chain of builder and plumber merchants supplying a huge range of products – everything from building materials to plumbing and heating, home improvement products to internal finish such as architectural ironmongery, kitchens, bathrooms, doors and floors. The Group imports timber and timber products, and is a leading manufacturer of machined timber as well as engineered roofing and flooring solutions in Ireland.
We pride ourselves on the opportunities people have to progress through the Company. Many of the current Directors and Senior Management Team have made this progression through Haldane Fisher. They offer a wealth of skills and experience as they lead and manage the business. Providing the highest levels of customer service, product knowledge and sound advice is our ultimate goal.
Through the commitment and dedication of all our employees we have become one of the UK’s largest independent Companies within our sector. With teamwork and continuing individual development we aim to create an environment where everyone will feel valued and experience job satisfaction.
