Smith Brothers Oldham holds open day

Smith Brothers Oldham held its open day on Friday May 10. The event started from 8am, with customers, staff and suppliers congregating in the 40,000 sq ft premises located on the Vulcan Business Park industrial estate to celebrate the official relocation of the branch.

In 2006, the Smith Brothers Oldham branch was opened to service the Lancashire and North West area. Over the 13 years of being based at the same premises, Oldham out-grew its warehouse and a relocation was required. Oldham officially moved into the new building in January 2019.

Darts professional Dennis “The Menace” Priestley and Paul Booth MC were the special guests at the event. In 1991 and 1994, Mr Priestley was world champion, and runner up in the years of 1996, 1997, 1998 and 2000. 

Staff, customers and suppliers were all able to play darts against the legend. Brian Nolan from Charlestown Engineering Services was the highest three dart scorer of the day, winning signed memorabilia as he matched the challenge set by the professional darts player.

Other activities included a golf simulator and an inflatable darts board. On the golf simulator people competed to get the longest drive, where the winner was Joe from Building Environment Solutions with a drive of over 300 yards; he received a fourball at the Belfry golf course. 

Customers enjoyed a hog roast and refreshments, along with the opportunity to meet and socialise with the Oldham staff and key suppliers and manufacturers connected to the industry. Merchandise from all companies present was handed out during the day.

Attending suppliers included Albion, Baxi, Polypipe Building Services, Pegler Yorkshire, Aquatechnik, IMI Hydronic Engineering, Lowara, Viega, MEP Hirestation, Daikin and Mobile Plant Rooms (MPR).

Oldham branch manager, Chris Finn, said: “Thank you everybody for making the day a great success.”

David Wildman, branch director, added: “Thank you to all customers, suppliers and staff for attending and contributing to such an excellent day!”
