What people are saying about Shawston

We have been working closely with Shawston on a large project which we are now close to finishing in Liverpool.

From the moment I started speaking to them it was apparent that they were different to other distributors we have used in the past. They suggested ideas on labour saving that we have since used and their service has been first class when delivering goods.

They do the simple things very well indeed, if they are short of an item they let us know in advance, prices were charged at the agreed rates meaning no invoice queries and they communicate as a supplier should do.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Shawston and will work very closely with them in the future.

Nigel Goulden, Owner of GA Mechanical

The relationship between Shawston and J&J Fire Engineering has grown extensively over the past 12 months. The service we receive from Shawston is second to none and we are thankful to all the Shawston staff for their continual pro-active nature and help when dealing with us.

It is always a pleasure to deal with Shawston. We are looking forward to a good and successful year ahead for us both.

Adam West, Company Director of J & J Fire Engineering

It’s truly amazing to witness the evolution Shawston has gone through over the six years Briggs & Forrester have had the pleasure of dealing with them.

The business has grown thanks in no small part to their excellent service, as well as an already impressive, yet continually expanding, product range. In the early days, Shawston mainly offered only bracketry.  Currently a key supplier of steel tube, pipe fittings, and Victaulic, Shawston additionally do bespoke fabricated pipe supports and steel frames.

Using Shawston’s in-house design service, with the support and collaboration of their own structural engineers, provides peace of mind that the calculations will always be correct.  They consistently provide a top quality finished product.

Shawston’s business strategy is strategically aligned with ours, helping Briggs & Forrester to be more productive.  Quick quotation turn around; ability to meet today’s demands of booking-in slots for site deliveries; and proactive communication with our Procurement and Site Teams, are just three reasons why Shawston is an excellent supply chain partner.

Darren Grizzell, Procurement Director of Briggs & Forrester.

Dealing with Shawston as our major supplier has proved to be invaluable.  It has allowed us to save time in our buying process, which in turn has enabled us to be more productive in other areas. Shawston are also a perfect match for our business logistically too. Their fleet of ten vehicles in the South guarantee our various sites early and on time deliveries, with reliable ex stock products ensuring that our projects continue to run smoothly and efficiently.

We look forward to continuing our partnership with Shawston and developing our working relationship in the future.
