Popular Southport hardware store under new ownership

A takeover is in the pipeline for Dyson Wholesale Company, a fixture on Brighton Road, Southport, for more than 30 years.

Founded in 1986, Dyson Wholesale Company has been the go-to shop for plumbing accessories, boiler systems and hardware needs in Southport since it was founded. The business had a 5-star Google rating and a loyal customer base. Now, husband and wife team, Sean and Lea Moffett have taken over the reins and they’re determined to continue to build on the Dyson Wholesale Company legacy.

Trading as Sean James Heating and Plumbing Ltd., Sean and Lea are aiming to expand the range of products available, and open up the store to consumer and business customers. They are also seeking to deliver a more streamlined service to patrons, promoting a telephone ordering system, which reduces wait times and improves efficiency.

Sean Moffett commented: “My wife and I are really excited to be operating our new venture and building on the reputation of our predecessor. Whether you’re a plumber in need of specific fixtures, or a homeowner looking for a new bathroom suite, we aim to accommodate your needs.”

The business was purchased from Hilton Smythe Business Sales, and finance was arranged through Hilton Smythe Finance.

Sean continued: “The team at Hilton Smythe were helpful, communicative and Hilton Smythe Finance were very knowledgeable. The support from Paul Williams at Hilton Smythe Finance has been really valuable in developing our business plan and supporting the business in its early days of operation.”

Paul Williams, said: “It’s fantastic to see Sean and Lea taking over this successful business and I’m sure their diverse offering will continue to deliver a high quality service for the people of Southport.”

Sean and family plan to continue to serve the public and trade at the lowest prices and best service they can offer, including telephone orders and delivery. There is also professional help over the counter and their bathroom suites are excellent quality, it only takes a look at their catalogues to find competitive prices and products that can be ordered for next day delivery.

Businesses like Dyson Wholesale Company are part of our high street and should be supported and encouraged with the support of local trades and the public. Thanks for supporting local businesses.
