Howden Joinery (HWDN.L, HWDN LN)
Howden Joinery is the leading trade supplier of kitchen and joinery products in the UK. The company sells exclusively to small builders from a circa 620-strong network of depots. Howden was established by Matthew Ingle, the current Chief Executive Officer, in 1995 as a business unit of the former MFI Furniture Group. It employs a unique, and arguably superior, business model - operating and incentivising its network of depots locally. Howden is almost entirely UK-focused, although it is currently exploring European opportunities.
