Howdens operates an ‘in-stock’ business model, which means that every depot, whether newly opened or long established, keeps our products in stock, ready for the builder to pick up when he or she walks through the door. We have large-scale warehouse hubs as well as on-site warehouses at each of our depots. Our warehouse staff are responsible for effective stock maintenance, compliance with strict Health and Safety regulations and high standards of customer service to make sure we always keep our promises to the customer.
