Our story

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.

Our products

As a perfectionist, Samuel Green was all about organisation, paying suppliers on the dot and keeping his warehouse in order. But what really set his company apart was the variety – of products and partners.

S. Green & Sons stocked a huge variety of products with an extensive price range to suit all budgets. As a result, we also sold to a vast array of sales outlets and other businesses – from shops, stores and market traders to hotels, nursing homes and ocean liners.

Despite all the growth and expansion, this variety is something you can still see in our company today. Now trading for almost 100 years – and in the third generation of the Green family – we stock an even wider selection of high-quality products to customers from a spectrum of sectors.
