About Us

It just keeps getting better and better

Few UK brands are rising as fast as Screwfix. But we’ve not doubled in size in recent years for nothing! Tradespeople and serious home improvers can’t get enough of us. We graft harder than anyone to give our customers what they want, quickly and affordably. And we hire personalities they can relate to – creating an experience everyone’s happy being a part of.

Can you believe we started as a mail catalogue business? We’ve always been determined to grow, but as our reputation reached new heights, we created countless more UK jobs – opening over 60 stores a year for almost a decade now. Thanks to our huge network of Trade Counters, the UK’s builders, plumbers and electricians are never more than 20 minutes from the part they need, on any job.

Our website is just as impressive. As part of the Kingfisher Group, we’re already the UK's largest supplier of tools, accessories and hardware products. We dispatch thousands of parcels every week for next-day and weekend delivery from online orders alone. And we still open new Trade Counters on a weekly basis. With an expansion strategy as good as ours, there’s no smarter move than choosing a career with Screwfix – the potential to progress is incredible.
