Holmes Industrial Supplies was established in 1990. It was located on Hull Road and under the ownership of John Holmes, Steven had been working in the shop with John Holmes for six years, before purchasing it in 2006 with co-owners Derek and Donna Fairweather. That makes Steven a long standing member of the Holmes Industrial Supplies team of 20 years, and consequently - extensive knowledge.

Shortly after purchasing Holmes Industrial Supplies we became part of the Tradezone Industrial Group with 33 stores nationwide that are independently, New Zealand owned and operated specialist engineering and tool suppliers. Offering great buying power and nationwide presence. This means that any non-stocked items can normally be sourced for the following day, due to our extensive supplier networks, both nationally and internationally.
