Popular Southport hardware store under new ownership

A takeover of the Dyson Wholesale Company, a fixture on Brighton Road, Southport, for more than 30 years, has been completed.

Founded in 1986, Dyson Wholesale Company has been the go-to shop for boiler systems and plumbing accessories in Southport since it was founded in 1986. The business had a 5-star Google rating and a loyal customer base. Now, husband and wife team, Sean and Lea Moffett have taken over the reins and they’re determined to continue to build on the Dyson Wholesale Company legacy.

The couple are aiming to expand the range of products available, and open up the store to consumer and business customers. They are also seeking to deliver a more streamlined service to patrons, promoting a telephone ordering system, which reduces wait times and improves efficiency.

Lea Moffett commented: “My husband and I are really excited to be operating our new venture and building on the reputation of our predecessor. Whether you’re a plumber in need of specific fixtures, or a homeowner looking for a new bathroom suite, we aim to accommodate your needs.”

The business was purchased from business broker, Hilton Smythe, and the finance was arranged by Hilton Smythe Finance.

Moffett continued: “The team at Hilton Smythe were helpful, communicative and the finance company HS Finance were very knowledgeable. The support from Paul at Hilton Smythe Finance has been a really valuable in developing our business plan and supporting the business in its early days of operation.”

Paul Williams, Head of Finance at Hilton Smythe Finance, said: “It’s fantastic to see Sean and Lea taking over this successful business and I’m sure their diverse offer will continue to deliver a high quality service for the people of Southport.”
