H&B Supplies was established in 1981 as a business specialising in the supply and distribution of branded fine fragrance to a local clientele.
During the 1990s the company grew significantly, building up a UK wide client base including an increasing number of large retail chains looking to source prestigious branded perfume and skincare products. Our initial success came through being able to supply these goods at competitive prices, and by providing both reliability and continuity of supply. To this day these original qualities remain fundamental to us providing a very high level of customer satisfaction.
Since 2000 we have seen a significant growth and diversification of our customer base, which now encompasses retailers, e-retailers and other wholesalers, not only in the UK but all over the world. We are always keen to do business in new markets, and this pioneering spirit has been reflected in the growth in our annual turnover, which has more than doubled to reach well over £45 million for the same period.
We employ the latest in house IT systems providing our team with ‘live’ accurate data of our current stock holdings. This also enables us to offer full batch traceability of products in the unlikely event there should ever be any recall issues with the stock we supply.
We exhibit at two of Europe's most high profile trade fairs staged annually at the Birmingham NEC. These are the Spring Fair held in February, and the Autumn Fair held in September. If you plan to attend these events we would be delighted to see you to discuss all of your fragrance and skincare requirements. Details of these fairs appear on our homepage a few weeks before the event.
