Reedy Supplies Ltd was founded in 19 72 in the tiny hamlet of Reedy near the village of Dunsford in Devon by my Grandparents – Don & Eileen Winter. Eileen was the daughter of one of the finest edge tool makers of his time Arthur Morris and at the time Don had over 25 years experience in the hand tool trade.
In the early days my father, Chris Greenman, helped out in the evenings and at weekends and even delivered tools strapped to his back on his motorbike! He joined the company in 1974 and is now the MD. He is still happy to do a delivery when needed but no longer on a motorbike!
We eventually outgrew our original premises and moved to our present base at Heathfield near Newton Abbot, Devon in 1990 and I joined the ‘family firm’ 8 years ago after working in Marketing in London and abroad for 10 years. During my childhood I was surrounded by hand tools of all descriptions and had developed a passion for sourcing and trying out unusual items. I am delighted that there are 3 generations involved in this firm.
We are a true family owned business with a friendly team of staff and customers old and new will always find a warm welcome , cup of tea and often home made cake too when they visit our showroom at Heathfield near Newton Abbot!
Our high quality Greenman Garden Tool range was inspired by tools from my Grandfather’s shed. They are traditionally made from sustainable Ash and have beautiful rust-resistant stainless steel heads. These quality tools have undergone many stages of development and have been put through their paces by various gardening groups and individuals from green-fingered professionals to enthusiastic beginners.
Our philosophy has remained the same over the years – that Customer care, personal service and the quality of the products are paramount. With the help of our hard working staff we aspire to fulfil all your needs.
