About Us

Readyfix is dedicated to supporting the UK construction industry nationwide with a huge range of site equipment and consumables essential to all stages of a project – from first dig right through to close out. With over 30 years experience in our sector, we are fully focused on becoming the industry’s first choice for trusted, quality products that do the job first time, every time.

Think yellow and blue for everything you do on site

We specialise in helping contractors and trade professionals to set up and run construction sites of every size efficiently, safely, and profitably. Our extensive product range includes ground-working tools, site welfare, construction-grade PPE, fixings, specialist sealants, brickwork sundries, temporary surface protection, hand and power tools, passive and reactive fire protection, and acoustic building materials – with over 1 million items held in stock.

Our unique strength lies in the enthusiasm and expert knowledge of our experienced sales team who are always happy to help. Whether you are a main contractor, sub-contractor, fit-out contractor, or trade professional, we are a trusted partner for all your building projects.

SERVICE YOU CAN DEPEND ON

Site supplies and tools is what we do. But what really matters is how we do it. Our reputation has been built on delivering a top- notch, reliable service that exceeds expectations.

Our day starts when yours does

All the team are on-hand from 6.30am weekdays to deal with your quote requests and enquiries which you can make by phone, email and WhatsApp. Our prompt response policy means you won’t wait long to hear back from us – we guarantee to respond to all enquiries within just 30 minutes.

On site, on time, in full

Our trusted delivery service is one of the fastest in the industry. From our fully-stocked 25,000sq ft warehouse located at our head office in the Northwest of England, our friendly drivers can deliver same day to the local area and to sites within the Manchester M60 (on all orders placed by 10am). Don’t worry if you miss the 10am cut-off, wherever you are in the UK, order by 3.30pm and your items will be with you the next day.

THE READYFIX STORY

Richard Burwood founded Readyfix in 1992. Initially trading from a garden shed at the family home in Preston, Richard’s vision was to create a legacy that would provide a secure future for his six children. A true family business from the start, there has always been a profound sense of commitment and accountability that still influences the direction and growth of our business today.

With his children now at the helm, and the next generation also joining the team, the future of the whole family depends on the continuing success of Readyfix. This contributes to our drive to understand the the challenges our customers face and provide a great service that is second to none. Longevity of leadership borne out of always being family-run has helped us build stability and consistency which are vital in building long-term business relationships

Readyfix now employs over 40 local people and in doing so has simply become an even larger family where everyone is treated fairly and rewarded. We are proud to be known for our reliability, prompt response and sound knowledge.

As the business continues to expand, we never forget where we have come from and who has helped us along the way. We have a story that will be kept alive because it means so much to all of us.
