Higgins marks 150th anniversary with van-tastic promo

Higgins Building Suppliers, the independent builders’ merchant with branches in Wellingborough and Irthingborough, is staging a special competition to mark its 150th birthday.

The business is offering one lucky customer the chance to win the keys to a brand new Vauxhall Combo van with the ‘Win a Van’ competition part of a wider series of events and initiatives planned throughout 2016 to mark its century-and-a-half.

The company is running special promotions and offering commemorative merchandising whilst in September, it will stage an anniversary trade day where the winner of the van will be revealed.

Higgins has been supplying the building trade throughout Northamptonshire, Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire since 1866 and today it ranks as one of the oldest independent builders’ merchants in the UK. Its current MD, Nigel Higgins, is the fifth generation of the Higgins family to head up the company.

Speaking about the ‘Win a Van’ competition, Nigel said: “150 years in business is a major milestone which warrants some equally major celebrations. Our competition which offers one customer the chance to win a van reflects that. We hope it will foster the same excitement amongst our customer-base that we feel as we celebrate our 150th year.”
