Our purpose is to help our trade customers achieve exceptional results for their customers and to profit from doing so. When our customers succeed, we succeed. Our purpose drives our business model and shapes our strategic decisions.
Howdens was founded on the principle that the business should be worthwhile for all concerned – customers, prospective customers, homeowners, tenants, local communities, our suppliers, our investors, our staff and their families. This founding principle has shaped our business model and our strategic decisions for more than 25 years, and it continues to be at the heart of what we do.
With an estimated market share of 27 per cent*, we are the UK’s leading supplier of fitted kitchens to trade customers throughout the UK. There are not many companies like Howdens - we manufacture in the UK, offer our trade customers products from local stock at more than 750 depots nationwide, and have a 25-year guarantee on all our cabinetry. That is why we have delivered more than six million kitchens - and counting- within the UK.
