About Needlers

Welcome to Needlers, the food industry specialist. 

We’re proud to be the UK’s leading supplier of PPE, safety and hygiene products to the food manufacturing industry.

With customers of all sizes in almost every food sector, our success is based on exceptional customer service, a tailored supply chain and an extensive, well priced product list..

Here’s a brief introduction to the benefits enjoyed by Needlers’ customers:

Product Range

Our ranges continually evolve. We stock the biggest brands in the business, including Kimberly-Clark, Vikan, Dunlop, 3M and Honeywell.

We have also developed our own product ranges which include our own label Reldeen; a practical value range of gloves, earplugs and footwear and Pro-Fit; a quality line of products which are ‘better by design’.

Over the next year we will be extending both these ranges and bringing our customers even more tailored product solutions.

We go to great lengths to quality monitor all of our products, some of which are sourced from the UK, and some from Europe and the Far East, allowing us to offer competitive pricing without compromising on performance.

Our Product Promise

Our product range and pricing is extremely competitive and our customers tell us that we stand out from the crowd in terms of service and delivery. We’re reliable, friendly and we really care. Our team is passionate about getting it right first time. If we can’t deliver for any reason we will always communicate with you and provide a solution.

A consultative approach

The Needlers team is not just here to sell to you – we’re experts in our field and we want to ensure that you’re buying the right products for your business. Our experienced food industry specialists will guide you on which products to use and bench mark you against your competitors to ensure you’re not spending more than you need to.

Reliability and flexibility of deliveries

We operate our own fleet of vehicles which enables us to offer flexibility and deliveries you can rely on. We can offer dedicated delivery dates and our team understands the complex requirements of multiple site operations.

Thank you for your interest in Needlers. We look forward to working with you and to supplying all your PPE, janitorial and safety needs.
