Mercer & Sons Ltd was established in 1840 and the present Managing Director is the fifth generation of the family to continue in successful trading.
The business was started by Thomas Turner Mercer who opened the Ironmongers shop on Northgate from where his sons eventually took over and the company became known for a while as Mercer Brothers. Our first lorry which replaced the horse and trap was purchased in 1949!
Mercer & Sons expanded into its Steel stockholders division combining that with valves, tubes and plumbing fittings in 1967 with the purchase of the Pump Street Mill Warehouses from where our successful trade department has traded ever since.
Our custom built Sales Centre services collections by our customers and our Warehouse team send out telephone, fax & internet orders via our fleet of vehicles to Lancashire, Cumbria, Greater Manchester, Merseyside & Cheshire. We despatch by next day carrier anywhere in the United Kingdom on stock items. It also houses our very busy Trade Centre open to the Trade and Public now recently refubished with new Power Tool Displays from Festool, Metabo, Trend etc.. - Jackloc suppliers and have grown into one of the leading Karcher Design Handle distributors and a major player in the Architectural Ironmongery market.
Our specialist experienced internal Sales Team can advise and competitively quote on not just all our vast range but will source any product that you may require. Our years of experience in building up our supplier contacts mean we are rarely unsuccesful in sourcing a products at a realistic price and lead time.
