As the renowned family business John Nicholls celebrate its 50th anniversary, the firm is looking forward to exciting new prospects.
The building and plumbing merchants has been a valuable part of the Banbury community ever since the late John Nicholls set up shop at the Overthorpe Road site in 1965.
Since then the business has grown from a one-man operation to a company with 150 members of staff across 16 branches close to home as well as four on the south coast - but it has never gone away from its true family values.
Managing director David Hebdon explained: “John’s two sons, Andrew and Philip, joined the business in the 1970s and they are still running it, and taken it to where it is today.
“It’s a family run business and it has retained that strong ethos, where the customers know the owners and understand the management of the business.
Loyalty is one thing David Hebdon says is key to the success of the company.
“It’s a combination of the loyalty of our customers as well as the loyalty of our staff,” he said and added: “As we have been growing the business throughout these years we have always stayed fairly local to Banbury - and have stuck to where the family name is known.
“We’re very well-known in the area with a great reputation for customer service.”
A big change for the firm came in 1999 when its retail showroom opened its doors in Overthorpe Road - now 15 years later it is known locally as the best showroom for miles.
But John Nicholls is not a company resting on its laurels and it is hoping a five-year plan will take its current £35m annual turnover forward by opening further branches. And David said their biggest challenge ahead is to make sure we have the right people to get us there.
He said: “Currently we have 150 members of staff but we’re going to need more talented people to grow the business
“Ultimately we’re looking at creating an Academy and are going to be talking to all schools in the area. Young people know what a plumber and a builder does, but many don’t understand what merchanting is and what career prospects the industry holds.
“We’re hoping to educate local young people about the many opportunities there are within such a well-established and expanding company. Continuing to give youngsters and all Nicholls employees career opportunities.
“It’s all very exciting. We’ve achieved a significant milestone to get to 50 but it’s really just the start.”

How Norbar was born – from wartime need to universal demand: Established in 1942, the "North Bar Tool Company" became the first company in Britain to commercially manufacture torque wrenches. The initial demand was driven by the need for the gasket-less cylinder head of the Rolls Royce Merlin engine to be accurately tightened. Bill Brodey and his partner Ernest Thornitt obtained a licence from Britain's wartime Government to begin manufacture of torque wrenches and Norbar was born.
Family values - Norbar is solely owned by the descendants of the founder, Bill Brodey. The company remains every bit as passionate today about providing customers with the highest quality products and services as Bill was when manufacturing that first torque wrench.
