Duftons 30th Birthday!
June this year will be very exciting for us as we’ll be celebrating our 30th Birthday! Throughout the years your loyalty has helped us grow and continue to supply all of your plumbing and heating needs. A lot has changed over the years but deep down we’re still the same, we want to offer you and your customers the best products for the best prices whilst maintaining that local supplier relationship.

Where it all began
In June of 1986 Barrie Fowler and Paul Dufton started a small plumbing and heating supplies business named Paul Dufton & Co. Ltd in West Yorkshire. The company grew from strength to strength opening more and more branches and employing additional staff who helped the business develop further. Originally there was 1 branch, 3 directors, their 3 wives and one driver. 30 years on Duftons is a network of 6 branches, employing 41 members of staff and we’re still growing! We want to make your job easier by being closer to you and by stocking the plumbing and heating supplies you need.

How we give back.
At Duftons we are all about our local community, rewarding the loyalty of our customers and giving back to those in need. Throughout the year we offer our quarterly and monthly promotions to save you money and leading up to Christmas we’ve started giving out our instant win scratch cards, which we know you love! We also do a huge amount for charity and in the last year alone worked with Charity Trade week to raise a massive £11,500 for Parkinsons UK! Part of our fundraising involved one of our staff members, Alice, doing a Wing Walk!
What do we have planned for 2016?
Over the next year we’ll be offering some fantastic deals to say thank you and celebrate our birthday. A lot of the Duftons staff will be completing the Tough Mudder obstacle course for charity later this year.
