A fine marriage of old style values

If three's a crowd, then two's certainly a company for a couple of salford's few thriving firms. The dynamic duo of Barry and Son and W.S.Henderson and Son are engineering suppliers with a difference - they thrive on other companies' failures.
For whenever a business folds and goes into liquidation - be it a back street garage or large conglomorate - Barry's and Hendersons are in like a shot to pick up any surplus stock. The fact that they've built up their stock to such an extent that they can claim to offer the best supply of engineering tools in the area, may be a sad sign of the times.

A PRIDE

But Managing Director Eric Snelgrove isn't complaining. "We may not be a big business concern or offer micro-chip technology," he said.
"But we're a private firm which takes a pride in the service we offer the customer. We believe in the old-fashioned way of doing things."
The success story of his two, now-merged companies, began just after the war, with acquisition of Government surplus stock ranging from nuts and bolts to engineering cutting tools.
The business progressed over the years by providing a good, reliable service and more recently has started selling stock which is surplus to requirements to firms which have felt the chill wind of the recession.

BOOMING

It isn't a fate likely to befall Mr.Snelgrove's concern. In fact, business is booming to such an extent that Barry and Sons bought out Hendersons a few years ago when it was tottering on the brink of collapse.
The two now occupy 18,000 sq. ft. on a quarter-acre site in Bute Street, Weaste employing a workforce of 10. They sell everything from car grills to floor cleaning rags; to air, electrical and machine tools.

Mr Snelgrove says they are now hoping to get Hendersons back on its feet and is confident they can offer the best motor repair and re-winding business in the area.
And contrary to the projected image, theirs isn't just a small-time set-up. They can boast a machine shop, a pick up and delivery service and a six-ton lorry-mounted crane on a 12½-ton truck enabling them to handle electrical motors up to 300 horse power.
Business is steadily being increased even during the depth of the recession. "We buy machinery and tools equipment etc. from Companies going into liquidation. Therefore we can offer a wide range of tools, nuts and bolts to Radial Arm Drills, at only a fraction of the recommended retail price, and deliver it off the shelf.
