Howdens

Howdens knows what it stands for: to help our trade customers achieve exceptional results for their customers and to profit from doing so. When our customers succeed, we succeed.

Howdens are a powerful combination of locally empowered depot management teams served by a dedicated supply chain, which is both cost effective and critical to the success of our in-stock offer. Our success is built on our relationships with our trade customers. We believe the builder is best to proceed to co-ordinate projects, supported by local in-stock Howdens depots underpinned by a dedicated supply chain and extensive product design and innovation.

HOWDENS Mission Statement
