About McVeigh Parker

History

Read about how McVeigh Parker has grown and innovated since it was founded in 1979.

McVeigh Parker are one of the largest independent suppliers of landscaping, agricultural and fencing products.

40 years leading the field

1979 - Gloria Gaynor released ‘’I will Survive’’, it was the Winter of Discontent and the Birth of Thatcherism was just around the corner.

In this tough environment Brian Parker and Michael McVeigh took over a small corner of a yard and rented a small van as an office. This van had been the living quarters of a driver and was towed behind a Steam Roller.

From this humble beginning in Berkshire, they never dreamed that their two man start up would expand into a distribution company with eight depots, 20 acres of storage, 100 staff and 50 delivery vehicles, recognised nationwide as a leader in the field of supply to farmers, contractors, utility companies and landowners of all descriptions.

Their aim was to offer a better service and deliver not only on price and quality, but when customers needed. Their range grew quickly, and soon they were offering a one stop shop to farmers and fencers alike. The bulk buying policy and huge stocks enabled McVeigh Parker to respond to customers’ demands quickly and efficiently, this model is still at the heart of what they do today.

Four decades in business is a real achievement in today’s environment and is testimony to the service and dedication given by all of the McVeigh Parker staff, many of whom have been with the company for over 20 years, nine over 30 years. McVeigh Parker’s CEO Chris Hambridge (who has been with the company from its very early days) says, “The secret of MP’s success can be found in simple things we all do so well, first, concern for our customers, always our first priority, second, to go the extra mile, to see our client’s point of view and view them as friends and business partners’’
