Simple & Reliable

Our ethos is to keep things simple, but to do things right.  Everything relies on good people and good systems, which is why we recruit and train well, and operate to ISO systems.  We have tried to keep our website simple and uncluttered, so please contact us for more information and have the chance to meet our great people!

More than 140 years experience

James Lister and Sons Limited was founded in 1874 and listersupplies is the business unit of the company that is the continuation from those beginnings.  Lister also has businesses in Fluid Power, Tube and Subcontract activities which have grown, often sharing the same customer base, based on the same intense focus on customer service.  All the business units support each other closely.

Not just a website!

We are not a "catalogue" company.  Although we can provide you with catalogues, or standard product lists if you wish, our primary focus is to save you cost and improve productivity by sourcing just what you need.  You can access some of our tool range here but please contact your branch for customised pricing.

WIth more than 40,000 stocked lines we may already have it, but if not we can certainly obtain it...
