Celebrating 165 years - 1858 to 2023
We are an independent Preston-based family firm, suppliers to the public and trade since 1858.
Now in its sixth generation, the business founded by Richard Slinger was originally situated in the heart of Preston on Friargate. Specialising in wood working machinery at a time prior to the advent of electric power. His son, William, later took the decision to expand the business and carry a broader range of ironmongery items.
Outside of our premises is a mural celebrating elements of our past, our present and our relationship with the local community.
You can watch the full video of the mural being painted below.
