Stephensons secures lucrative contract with Hydes Brewery: Stockport-based catering equipment supplier, Stephensons, has secured a contract with award-winning independent family brewer, Hydes.
The contract will see Stephensons supply everything from crockery to disposables to 32 Hydes pubs in the local area, and comes at a successful period for both businesses. Stephensons expanded its premises last year following a period of growth, with turnover exceeding £10.7m. Hydes also experienced impressive growth, thanks in part to a £6.5m acquisition of Woodward and Falconer Pubs Co.
Henry Stephenson, Managing Director at Stephensons, said: “We are delighted to be working with such an esteemed brewery. Both Hydes Brewery and Stephensons are family-owned companies with rich histories dating back to the 1860s, so the partnership seems like the perfect fit.”
Bob Brooks, Operations Manager at Hydes Brewery, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity to forge a partnership between two successful North West businesses. We very much look forward to working with Stephensons, and we hope this signals the start of a strong and long-lasting relationship.”
Founded in 1868, Stephensons supplies operators with light catering equipment from glassware and tableware to clothing, to commercial kitchen appliances, as well as janitorial supplies and disposables.
