S. Green & Sons was founded by Samuel Green in the 1920s as a wholesale distributor of home textiles and soft furnishings. After borrowing £100 from his father, he developed the business alone until meeting his wife Hettie, who took charge while he served in the Second World War.
The next recruits came in the shape of his own sons, Gerald and Melvyn. With expertise in accounting and economics, respectively, his two sons were instrumental in the expansion of the firm.
By the 1980s, the company offered a wide range of bedding, bath sheets and household goods to retailers throughout the UK.
Now it it’s third generation, Melvyn together with his son Aron have successfully navigated the changing face of retail. We continue to adapt to evolving customer needs, while growing our direct sourcing and supply network, and improving our infrastructure to service all sectors of the retail market.
