Our company story began more than 30 years ago when Michael Howell, our Chairman and Founder, set up the company in 1982. The company started to respond to the increasing demand from small food retailers, wholesalers and the banking sector, looking for a dedicated repair facility.
Justin joined the family business in 1992, when the company consisted of just two site vans and a small team, carrying out various roll cage repairs on site. Justin spotted opportunities within the industry to buy and sell reconditioned roll cages and other associated equipment in addition to continuing to provide a repair service.
Justin became a leading director 10 years ago and now oversees the full daily running of the business, whilst his brother Clinton oversees the management of the repair centre.
Distribution Maintenance continued to develop their high-quality repair services and supply of reliable and fully refurbished transit equipment to become the most respected and experienced company in this field, supplying to a broad range of industry sectors. Distribution Maintenance now run a large dedicated fleet of mobile service vans and company vehicles, along with a large team of highly trained engineers, capable of offering a nationwide repair service to fulfil customer repairs on site. Our client base continues to expand and our portfolio now includes many of the UK’s leading companies.
Given the continued success of the business, Distribution Maintenance has taken the exciting decision to diversify and add to our already wide range of products and services to now offer brand new distribution equipment for sale, including A-frame cages, stillages and magnums. With manufacturing facilities in both the UK and Far East, we are now well placed to service the requirements of our customers, both nationally and globally for both bespoke and standard product lines.
