Quality products, taking care of people and their businesses, finding solutions, delivering safely on time, chatting openly about problems, building trusted relationships, going the extra mile and having fun along the way, is why we do what we do. Its also why we are still around and growing from strength to strength after over 100 years. We are passionate and proud of our business, our teams and our customers – but don’t just take our word for it - have a look what some of our customers say.
“The Bailey factory paints around 6 trailers a day using 125 litres of Witham’s Woco Epoxy Primer paint and 125 litres of Woco Urethan Topcoat per day. We also now have Witham supply all the lubricants for our trailers, including bulk hydraulic oil, sealant, greases, hand cleaners and degreasers.
The Witham team bend over backwards to help ensure we have good paint, delivered on time and if we have any problems, it gets sorted quickly. We like using a local based business where we know who we are dealing with and they care about what they do. Dave and the support team at Witham pull out all the stops and we have never had a problem.”
MICHAEL BAILEY, MD, BAILEY
“Witham supply us with all our oils and lubricants for our machines, as well as our paints for our equipment and vehicles. It is important that a supplier is reliable but also flexible to help us with the changing needs and requirements of the business. I feel it is important to work with another local family business who understands our needs and I can often be found texting Witham’s Managing Director about oil or paint requirements late into the evening and you always get a prompt reply!”
ADAM FOX, MD, FOX OWMBY
“We began working with Witham some 20 years ago, and from the outset, we were impressed with the reliability, service, on time delivery and the quality of all the marine and workshop products that we ordered and still do today. We use Witham wherever possible including oil, paints, coolants and antifreeze and many other useful lubes and greases that are used on our premises or in the workshop.
Witham have consistently impressed us with integrity and a determination to provide the highest level of service. It is evident that this bleeds down from senior management to the workshop floor.”
JAMES FRASER, MD, NORFOLK YACHT AGENCY
“Trust, reliability, advice and technical expertise is what we look for in a supplier and Witham has all these plus the availability of products, which is something that we rely on. We also like being able to support another successful local family run business. Having used Witham's products for many years as a family and a business we highly recommend their products and value their ongoing support.”
DARREN GOURLEY, OWNER, FIELD FARM
“Witham’s oils are approved by Caterpillar and Volvo so we use them in all our service contracts, which saves us money without compromising on quality. It’s important for us to have a supplier that can provide quality products at good value, and good delivery and service – all of which Witham provide.
Their sales rep, Richard Scarbrough is brilliant. He looks after all our needs and if there are any problems, he is just at the end of the phone.”

We have known Witham for over 30 years and the reason we use them is that we have created a partnership. We are looking for partners in our business not just suppliers and think that is what we get with Witham, plus they’re a family business like ours and have great ethics and values.”
JAMES R THURLOW: CHAIRMAN & CHIEF EXECUTIVE, THURLOW NUNN GROUP
“Witham’s long term reliable reputation, consistent product quality, product range, and availability of product is of great value to us. As the products are blended in-house, delivery times are quick and very reliable. We also get no nonsense, good technical advice, that in most cases, simplifies the application and use of oil on a farm.
Witham offer a free farm survey for members including rationalisation of oils used on-farm and provision of free oil tanks, reducing waste, spillage, and contamination. This is a service that many members appreciate, and we offer it to new members. Many have been astonished at how it has revolutionised their workshop.'

“We have been using oils, greases and paints from Witham for over 30 years, from the floor paints in our workshops to some specialist lubricants that are blended specifically. The quality and value that Witham products offer is exceptional. This combined with the high levels of service ensures we are happy customers.
A good supplier is recognised by us on levels of service, as it’s no good having the cheapest supplier if they can’t deliver or the quality is poor. A quality product and good service is what we need to have, along with a competitive price and value for money. Witham Group offer all of this.'

Witham were a great help in providing all the paint for our new workshop floor. They are always on hand to speak to if we need any advice.
It seems rare nowadays to be able to pick up the phone and speak to someone without going through the pains of a call centre. Witham were great helping provide the finishing touches to our new workshop in 2018. The floor paint has stood the test of time and 4 years on still looks fantastic.'

“I have used Witham oils and greases for over 15 years, on a range of 1930’s Austins and on my vintage motorcycles. In particular, their mono-grade, non-detergent oils have proved to be very effective in all applications, engine stripping and with little wear evident.
