Each generation of the family will have had their fair share
of management problems that is the nature of business. Arguably,
however, Richard Brundle, who joined the firm in 1956 and is
now the current proprietor, was to face some of the biggest challenges.
During the 1950's the trade saw almost overnight changes in
its traditional markets. The dairies and other similar commercial
users abandoned horses in favour of electric floats. Plastics,
cardboard and palletisation were introduced which effectively
killed off the use of wooden cases.
Changing the nature of the business was vital, and a number
of new product lines were tested and evaluated. It wasn't long
before the company had moved into mild steel wires and welded
Following this early success the company has continued its
policy of careful product selection and diversification and has
gone from strength to strength.
Today, FH Brundle can proudly claim to be leading wholesale
suppliers in their product ranges - but still maintains those
traditional values first established back in 1889.
