The leading supplier to the Plumbing & Building Industry since 1948

See New Products....
Since it was founded as a one man business by Brian Caraher in Belfast back in 1948 the company has, over the years, grown into one of the largest and most respected Company operating in the Plumbing Wholesale Distribution sector.
Brian Caraher was a dynamic person. He cut his business teeth selling second hand engineering plant and machinery for a Belfast based engineering company.
New equipment was hard to come by immediately after the Second World War, but the young Brian Caraher made sure that any up and coming new businesses were furnished with good quality second hand plant and machinery that could easily be adapted for new purposes.
A newspaper cutting dating back to 1946 makes reference to a certain Mr Brian Caraher opening the bidding on items of plant that were being auctioned off. (click over cutting to enlarge)
The decision to start out on his own came after a dispute over the payment of commission on a large order sold to an American Engineering Company. The size of the order meant that Brian's Commission on that one sale alone would have far exceeded his annual salary.
It was never paid and the disillusioned young salesman decided that in future he would be in control of his own destiny, and his own commission. The rest as they say `is History`
