W.Howard Group celebrates 65th anniversary

MDF profile supplier W.Howard Group is celebrating its 65th anniversary this month. On 4 December 1958 William Howard created the business, which began as a traditional timber merchant, serving local farmers and joiners in and around Manchester.

Over the decades that followed, W.Howard expanded to become a manufacturer and distributor of timber products, with Alan Grant joining the business in 1970.

65 years later the company is proud to still be a family-run business, with Alan’s son Jonathan now Group Chief Executive of a company that employs 165 people in five sites across England, Wales and Ireland.

W.Howard Group offers Europe’s widest range of MDF profiles and skirting products, and continues to expand its portfolio with new ranges. Its most recent launches include wall panelling kits, wide window boards, door linings and other bespoke products.

The company's longevity is bolstered by a dedication to outstanding customer service. Putting customers first and always going the extra mile to provide the support required to grow their business is at the heart of W.Howard's ethos.

Speaking about the company’s anniversary, Group Chief Executive, Jonathan Grant, said: “To be celebrating W.Howard’s 65th anniversary is a fantastic achievement for everyone who works – and has worked – in the business over those years. It’s been an incredible journey and I'm delighted to have been part of W.Howard for over 35 years. We certainly have no plans to retire at 65!

“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the entire W.Howard team for their continued hard work and dedication, and also a huge thank you to all our customers and suppliers for continuing to support us.”
