Welcome to Shawston
Shawston is one of the UK’s largest privately owned distributors of steel tubes, fittings, valves & pipe supports with close to 50 years experience operating within these market places.
Our reputation for outstanding customer service has allowed us to benefit from substantial growth over the last 10-years.
All profits have been re-invested in the business to facilitate branch openings, increased stock, staff and delivery vehicles. With just 13 staff 10 years ago, we now have over 80 employees and 5 branches nationwide.
With supply chains direct with manufacturers across the world, we have eradicated the need for unnecessary premiums and unassociated costs. This enables us to offer fixed prices for large projects or bulk commitments.

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.
