Pre-tax profit: £1.1m
Haldane Fisher is one of the leading independent suppliers to the construction industry in the UK and Ireland, serving trade customers, self builders and the general public.
Haldane Fisher is part of the Haldane Shiells Group, made up of Haldane Fisher NI, Haldane Fisher Isle of Man, and GE Robinson in North West England bringing the total number of branches within the Group to 15. The business has grown organically and through acquisition since it was founded by Bob Haldane in 1946, but it still retains the high levels of personal service one would associate with a family-run business. Predominantly a chain of builders and plumbers merchants supplying a huge range of products, the group supplies everything from building materials to plumbing and heating, home improvement products to internal finish such as 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.
In the year ending in 2011 it saw employment grow by eight, a slight contraction in turnover but profit climbed sharply from £0.4m to £1.1m.
