Where it all began

Cromwell began with one man, Michael Gregory, on Cromwell Crescent in Market Harborough in 1968. With nothing but a car boot full of saws and shovels and a bucket load of ambition. Our first store came just two years later and growing on to be the branch network we know today.

Getting bigger

Fast forward 50 years and we are now a network of branches and offices across Britain and around the world. With a hard working and dedicated team that always puts the customer front and centre in everything we do. We are the HIGH TOUCH distributor committed to having a more personal approach as well as commitment to digital – We will work with you – your way.


This success attracted the attention of Grainger. In 2015 Cromwell became part of W.W. Grainger, Inc. family, North America’s leading broad line supplier of maintenance, repair and operating (MRO) products to businesses and institutions.
