From humble beginnings.
Honey Brothers Ltd have been based in Peasmarsh since 1955 and was founded by two brothers, Peter and Tony Honey.
At the start Honey Brothers Ltd would provide tree surgery services to the local area before turning to selling the local arborists high quality tree climbing and cutting equipment.
The company was later taken on by the Peter’s sons Martyn and Michael who continued to sell equipment to the local area and across the UK whilst continuing with the tree surgery side and also consultancy.
Gaining momentum and growing the Honey Brothers Ltd name they proceeded to gain more staff and provided better service to their customers as the demand across the country grew.
Honey Brothers Ltd became the go to for any tree surgeon in the UK for equipment and advice.
The Honey family employed Martyn Day and Stuart Girdler who started by booking in lawnmowers to be repaired, delivering and collecting them and ordering parts. When out delivering Stuart was fond of a layby to pull into to kill some time.
Martyn and Stuart then moved into the sales side of the business, gaining their knowledge on the whole Arboricultural sector including climbing equipment and chainsaws.
In 2007 Martyn was working one Saturday and saw the opportunity to be able to buy Honey Brothers Ltd. A Conversation was had between Martyn Honey, Martyn Day and Stuart Girdler and the deal was done!
After Martyn and Stuart took this challenge on it has been a whirlwind ever since, making Honey Brothers known across the world.
Offering International Shipping to countries including Japan and Australia.
The original shop was knocked down in 2019 ready for a fresh rebuild and new Honey Brothers Ltd superstore which was opened in March 2020
The new store build gave the shop more floor space to fill with the products you know and love as well as a harness climbing area complete with Arborist inspired graffiti designed by Colm Hickey from Arb Fiction.
In 2019 apart from the shop being taken down there were a couple more vital changes to put Honey Brothers Ltd into the 21st century.
A complete rebranding was undertaken including a new logo, colours and new website to fit.
To go with the ever growing business Honey Brothers Ltd expanded into a larger fulfilment centre to be able to hold more stock and service our online customer base more efficiently.
Some of you may know the old logo but for the newcomers we have attached the before and after below.
Make sure to come and visit the store.
