About us

We were originally a small family company, founded in Scotland in 1982. Back then, Helen and Matthew started as engineering supplies merchants, supplying tooling to manufacturing companies. As their children grew, Sarah-Jane came into the family business and began developing an online website back in 1996 and started selling online in 1997 with www.engineeringsupplies.co.uk This was handed over to her brother Simon in 2000 who has continued to expand and develop the engineering consumables range.

In 2002, Sarah-Jane married and moved to Norfolk - starting another branch, devoted to selling multi fuel and wood burning stoves. She is a technical sales advisor and front of house for the Attleborough, Norfolk showroom and warehouse depot, with hundreds stoves in stock. Our range of stoves can be found at www.naturalheating.co.uk

Simon now runs the Hamilton branch where we predominantly supply aerospace, the oil & gas industry, motorsport (including most of the well known F1 teams) and Ministry of Defence. After finishing his masters degree in management consultancy and automated systems Simon integrated this into the engineering supplies business. This has allowed us to help many engineering firms streamline their operations, making the most of the latest technical engineering solutions and products, whilst making significant cost savings.

Simon is very much like his father though and including the terrible jokes, likes to get involved in learning many new skills and is not afraid to get his hands dirty. When he's not doing night school classes in welding or various languages, he's usually covered in oil restoring cars. Past projects include building an AC Cobra, restoring two Lotus Esprit S1 cars to concours condition and currently rebuilding a Ford FE big block V8 Engine.

Reputation is very important to our business and so as part of our ethos we make a point of selling well known, reliable, tested brands that we believe will not let our customers down. We do not sell own brand cheap imports to compete on price and where possible we will always try to sell products from manufacturers within the UK at a competitive price that assure performance and accuracy. 

Despite there being over 24,000 products on our site if there are items that you do not see listed that you require please send us an email to sales@engineeringsupplies.co.uk 

Your personal first contact for our Hamilton warehouse is Cheryl Gilmour. Cheryl will be happy to assist you with any order or enquiry you wish to make.

Although Cheryl is extremely well versed in most products if you require further technical advice Simon would be your best person to contact. 

We do have a depot which you are able to visit and view the majority of the stock we sell.  

We believe in being totally honest with customers and helping you assess your needs - to find the products and options that suit you most.... basically, we treat YOU the way we would like to be treated ourselves.

You'll never get a sales pitch - just a warm welcome!
