About Shawston

Shawston is one of the UK’s largest privately owned distributors of steel tubes, fittings and pipe supports to fire sprinkler and mechanical contractors of all sizes.

Established in 1965 with a reputation for outstanding customer service, Shawston has enjoyed substantial growth over the last 15-years under the ownership of its hands-on management team. Today, Shawston is one of the fastest growing SME’s in the UK with £20 million group turnover, over 100 employees, four trading depots and a separate steel tube processing division in Manchester.

Shawston’s style of trading is based on a core set of philosophies: honest communication; hands on management; loyalty to customers, suppliers and staff. Customer and staff retention is very high and most often new customers end up growing to become substantial partners with Shawston.

In December 2015 Shawston became an employee owned business where over 85% of the entire workforce are now equity owners. You can join this elite team of shareholders. You can benefit from capital growth in a share price as well as annual dividend payments. The business philosophy is a ONE TEAM CULTURE where powers to operate are devolved to each and every person. There is no status or hierarchy at Shawston, we operate as a team of talented and committed people.
