Catering equipment supplier Stephensons has secured a major new contract with Salford Quays-based 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.
Founded in Stockport 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.
Managing Director Henry Stephenson 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.”
