Hillbrush HQ is located in Mere (just off the A303) in a state of the art, purpose built facility.
With a dedicated product development team, we are passionate about creating products and ranges that are unique to Hillbrush. In recent years, we have created the world’s first fully metal and x-ray detectable brushware range, introduced Anti-Microbial brushware for food manufacturing areas requiring due diligence, and established the widest range of colours for workplace organisation. We encourage our team to share their ideas and with our in-house research, development and testing area, we are able to bring their ideas to life.
A family owned and run business for almost 100 years, our key focus has always been our customers.
Through providing unrivalled customer service, our customers tell us how much they enjoy working with Hillbrush and can trust our products. In 1981, Hillbrush was granted the Royal Warrant to Her Majesty The Queen and has retained this ever since. Our dedicated Quality Manager ensures our products leave us in pristine condition and works tirelessly to ensure the products continue to meet our exacting standards.
We believe in treating everyone equally and expect everyone in our team to behave in a socially and ethically exemplary way. We strive to create a pleasant environment at all times in which our team is treated fairly and with respect. We were recently recognised for our efforts in this area as we were awarded “Best Family Business” and overall “Business of the Year” by the Blackmore Vale Business Awards.
We are conscientious and take pride in our work. Everyone is accountable for their own performance and we encourage all members of our team to take responsibility for their actions. However, there is a also supportive team structure in place where ideas and challenges are openly shared and feedback is encouraged and reciprocated.
