Company History of Hancock and Brown

Hancock & Brown is Swansea's largest & longest established independent merchant. 

The business was founded in 1978 by Wyndham Brown and Martyn Hancock, Both were former employees of Gregor Bros Timber Merchants. 

Since 1987 Hancock & Brown has been in the ownership of Wyndham Brown, Nigel Brown who joined in 1978, and David Brown in 1979; Phillip Brown was employed by the company from 1988 until 2000 when he left to start his own business. 

During 1991 the business expanded, keeping a much larger range of general building products, this was further increased in 1994 with the acquisition of adjacent premises.

In 2009 Hancock & Brown relocated to a new purpose built 34,000 sq foot warehouse on a 3 acre site, where our timber stocks have been increased. We have also opened a Roofing Centre, a Café, a Wood-Burning Stove Shop, and a greatly improved DIY store.

Hancock and Brown have been appointed as a distributor of Rolawn turf and topsoils, which further complements our landscaping range of products. 

At Hancock & Brown we pride ourselves on our high standards of both customer service and the products we offer, we are truly a One Stop Shop for Every Building Product.

Our timber is sourced from the very best mills and the quality is the best in the Swansea area.
