Diss business hits 50 years as a family-run business and looks ahead to bright future
After half a century in business, Diss Ironworks is an enterprise with few wrinkles in its operation.
Selling a wide array of range cookers, wood-burning and gas stoves, homeware, cookware, lighting and ironmongery, the business was launched by master craftsman Peter Hyde in 1973.
His son, Matt, and wife Hannah assumed control in 2011 and continue to run the business with quality craftsmanship at the forefront of their ethos.
The pair run both the physical showroom and online shop alongside a neighbouring warehouse, from which online orders are dispatched.
Mrs Hyde said: “Achieving 50 years in business is no mean feat, especially with the challenges faced by businesses in recent years.
“We feel immensely proud of what we have achieved here and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all our local customers for their loyalty and custom over the years.
“We believe that our success comes from putting our customers first. We’re passionate about giving exceptional service and we work hard to ensure that our product knowledge is thorough and up to date so that we can give the best advice to our customers, including on the latest technologies to improve the environmental performance and energy efficiency of products.
“In addition, our suppliers know that they can rely on us to represent their brands well, which means that we get to offer our customers a great selection of products. We can’t wait to see what the next 50 years will bring.”
Originally located in Norfolk House Yard, as the Diss Ironworks range expanded, so too did its premises, with the business extending into St Nicholas Street and Cobbs Yard.
The business has since become a trusted partner for major range cooker and wood-burner brands, such as AGA and Charnwood.
Diss Ironworks, based in St Nicholas Street, is open from Tuesday to Saturday.
