Cold Weather Leads To Hot Sales At Slingsby


SINCE the start of the month Bradford based Slingsby has been inundated with orders for snow and ice related products and has worked around the clock to help organisations across all industries to continue operating as normal.

This follows a significant investment in both new products and stock levels across a wide range of products including ice melt, snow shovels, salt spreaders and a grit bin to store winter supplies, many of which can be delivered next day, throughout the UK.

Lee Wright, Marketing Director of Slingsby, which supplies more than 35,000 workplace products through its catalogue and website, explains: “Last winter we were one of only a few companies in the UK that was able to supply winter products throughout all the chaos that the January snow brought. This reinforced our position as the UK’s leading workplace equipment provider and we were keen to continue building on this reputation and raise the bar even further this year.

“As a result we have continued investing heavily in our winter range and this is complemented by our on-site, state of the art, plastic moulding facility which enables us to produce grit bins and other similar products using recycled plastic.”

Lee adds: “We’ve also experienced high volumes of sales of winter products at our trade counter from both commercial and domestic customers that require products immediately and with further cold weather and snow forecast, this trend looks set to continue.”

Slingsby was established in Bradford during 1893 by Harry Crowther Slingsby who designed and created a range of robust trucks and trolleys to move heavy loads horizontally around large buildings. Several members of the Slingsby family remain on the board of directors and whilst the company is still famous for its manual handling equipment, it now supplies more than 35,000 workplace products to a full range of industries via its catalogues and website.
