Record year for Hughes Trade

Hughes Trade has announced a record year, with latest figures showing the company grew by 23% to achieve a turnover of £20 million.

General manager Paul Chisnall said the firm’s success has been built on giving great service to new and existing customers both at home and overseas, and particularly large growth in the rental side of the business.

Hughes announced the figures as it revealed details of it recently relocated Cambridge operation, which has now moved to larger premises on the outskirts of Huntingdon.

The new branch, situated just off Junction 23 on the A14, is managed by Grentham Rush and was officially opened by longstanding customer Ian McCulloch from McCulloch Direct Ltd.

It will carry a much larger range of stock and will deliver to customers in Huntingdon, Cambridge, Kettering, Bedford, Newmarket, Wellingborough, Corby and St Neots.

Chisnall said: “We simply outgrew our Cambridge facility and needed more space. This is another part of the continuing growth of the business.”

The company also opened new branches in Leeds and Leicester, and Chisnall said it is looking to open a further two this year in locations that will be new for the business.

Hughes Trade currently operates from 14 branches with 50 employees.
