During 1991 the business expanded, keeping a much larger range of general building products, this was further increased in 1994 with the acquisition of further premises.
In 2009 Hancock & Brown relocated to a new purpose built 34,000 sq foot warehouse on a 3 acre site where our timber stocks have substantially increased.
We have also opened a Wood-Burning Stove Showroom, a much improved DIY store, and a wider range of Landscaping / Gardening Products.
At Hancock & Brown we pride ourselves on our high standards of both customer service and the products we offer, we are truly a one stop shop for every building product.
