Abbots Engineering Supplies was founded in 1994 as a family business. From the outset our aim was, and still is, to deliver the highest quality products, service and customer care at competitive prices, specialising in the Mechanical & Electrical sector of the Building Services industry.
In April 2004, to add further value for our customers, Abbots Engineering Supplies was incorporated into Abbots (UK) Ltd.
Abbots provide a full and reliable next day delivery from a comprehensive range of products. We carry over 15,000 lines in stock to support our customer onsite needs. The product range includes support systems, fixings, tools and a vast selection of consumables and PPE. Our long serving and fully experienced sales team, coupled with our extensive supplier base means that however obscure the item required, we can source it.

FORS is built around continuous improvement, where its members strive for even higher operational standards as they progress through the levels of the scheme. FORS accreditation goes beyond basic legal compliance, with our members able to tangibly evidence how they far exceed the legal basics by following our unique mix of driver and management training, robust auditing and statistic-based efficiencies, backed up by a range of online support tools and guidance from our national helpline.
FORS accredited operators comply with both CLOCS (Construction Logistics and Community Safety) and Transport for London’s WRRR requirements. FORS Silver accreditation can be used to demonstrate CLOCS compliance as the schemes are designed to align, to keep compliance simple.
FORS is about continuous progression, so its members can become safer, smarter and greener with a model to suit commercial vehicles of all types, from truck, van, coach, bus, taxi and powered two-wheeler operators.
Abbots have held the FORS Silver accreditation since 2019.
