Smiths Brothers marks 125 years
Smith Brothers are proud to be celebrating our 125 years anniversary with origins dating back to 1897, when founder Walter Smith began to lay the foundations of what has become one of the largest independent merchants operating in the UK.
The business has transitioned significantly over the 125 years from manufacturing boilers for the shipping industry, to furnishing hundreds of mills built within Leicester and assisting with the war efforts, before finally focussing predominantly on piping and HVAC supplies as the market grew in the 1960s.
Today, SBS remains family owned with 5th generation family members working within the business, which now consists of 17 branches and 400+ members of staff. In our 125 years, we have remained focused on our brand promise of staff, stock and service, ensuring our customers are at the forefront of every decision, whilst investing in quality.
