- About Us
Neville Lumb was originally found over 100 years ago in 1882 by George H. Cakebread and Arthur E. Robey (then known as Cakebread Robey).
Obviously since then the business and the industry we deal in has changed quite considerably. However, the original commitment to superior customer service and consistently supplying high quality products at the best price remains the same today.
During this time Neville Lumb has established itself as the leading specialist supplier and stockist of sanitaryware, brassware as well as plumbing and heating materials. We are also now recognised for our superior estimation service where we provide clients and customers with honest and accurate quotes for projects unlike many of our competitors, completely free of charge.
Neville Lumb in recent years has also been at the forefront of innovation within the sanitaryware industry, providing environmentally friendly, water conserving solutions for both trade and domestic customers.
Since our foundation we have acquired and absorbed many established names within the merchant trade industry, bringing them all under the Neville Lumb banner. These merchant business acquisitions include:
- Ridley & Hooper
- Clark Hunt
- J H Tripp
- Keith Bulding Services
- A Olby & Son
- Arthur Collar
- Dixon Scott
- D & T Holmes
- W P Winter
