About Us

About Us

Sibbons (Alresford) Ltd was established in 1963 by founder Norman Sibbons who after a few successful years expanded his property development company into plant and tool hire. Originally trading from St. Johns Workshop in Bromley Road, Elmstead Market, the company then expanded to larger premises around the corner at Bottles Hall in Clacton Road.

Since 1986 Sibbons has traded from its current purpose built premises, a three acre site located at Keelars Tye, Keelars Lane, Elmstead. Initially with a single large building housing our specialist workshops, a shop and office, this is now used as a stores and workshop with a larger shop and office built next door which we still use today. More recently, we have further expanded building a huge, road front shop with a full car park attached to the existing shop to ensure we are better able to serve  our customers and the public for years to come.

We are proud that the company is one of the largest independents in the area; while also still being a family run company with first, second and third generations all currently working within the company.

We have spent many years building solid relationships with a vast range of top brands; this means that we are better able to offer you what you want at affordable prices. We pride ourselves on being an official dealer for a fantastic selection of clothing, workwear and footwear, and boast brands such as JACK MURPHY, TOGGI, SNICKERS, MASCOT, HELLY HANSEN, DR MARTENS, CAT and many, many more. On top of this we ensure we cover all your contractors’ needs and are dealers for CALOR, COLAS, BULLFINCH, CARTERS TOOLS, HOROBIN and more. We stock a wide range of other brands you know and love including BAHCO, IRWIN, STANLEY, FAITHFULL to name a few, ensuring you get exactly what you need. We work closely with Toolbank, Draper, Sealey and many other key dealers so that if we don’t have it here, we have next day access to tens of thousands of products.
