How does HBS help schools?

We've always been customer focused

We’re owned and operated by the same family who carved out the original business in 1973. Throughout our history one thing remains the same: our love for the customer and what we do for them.

Our story began in 1973 with our first fledgling years served as a humble high street shop in Pinner. By 1990 we’d outgrown our beloved high street shop, making the move to Watford, and expanding our mail order service to schools and colleges. In 2006 we sent our first ever Educational Supplies Catalogue to print. Featuring just 144 pages, this initial effort compares to our catalogue of today – which spans some 1200 pages, and includes more than 20,000 educational supplies.

Today with our Head Office and Warehouse based in Essex, we count more than 2000 schools as our clients, spanning throughout London and the South East. Despite all of the changes, one thing remains unshakeably the same: our love for the customer and what we do for them. We’re passionate. And it shows. Here’s to the next four decades of re-defining the industry, providing a cost effective, time-critical procurement solution and leaving only a trail of happy customers in our wake.
