Branch no. 16 for Hughes Trade

Hughes Trade, which was established in 2007, has opened its 16th UK branch as part of an ongoing expansion programme.

The outlet is based in Newbury – a new part of the country for the firm – and serves business customers in the town and surrounding areas including Basingstoke, Reading and Oxford.

“These premises give us the ability to stock a wide range of products for immediate delivery, while giving access right along the M4 corridor and particularly into Slough and Heathrow,” said Hughes Trade General Manager Paul Chisnall.

“This is the latest chapter in the continuing growth of the business.”

Chisnall added that last year was a record for the business, with a 23% rise in sales to over £20m.

The new branch is managed by Jos Williams (pictured left). He is assisted by Dean Clarke (right), who has worked for many years in similar businesses in the town.
