Company Announcement

On 24 August 2016 an agreement was reached for Metcash Limited (Mitre 10) to acquire 100% of the Home Timber & Hardware Group (HTH) business from Woolworths Limited.

The sale is expected to be completed by early October.

Throughout the transition to new ownership, our top priority will continue to be our people and our customers.

We continue to trade as normal at this time with the same great service, products and advice you’ve come to expect from your local Home Timber & Hardware store.

It is important to note that the acquisition does not change the ownership arrangements of our 350 independently owned and operated Home Timber & Hardware and Thrifty-Link stores who licence our brand and are serviced via our wholesale distribution network.

The sale also excludes the Home Timber & Hardware company-owned sites at Gungahlin (ACT), the wholesale electrical site in Launceston (TAS), and the South Dandenong distribution centre in VIC, and as such the ongoing operations of these sites will cease at a point in time.

Thank you for your continued support of Home Timber & Hardware. Keep going where the tradies go.

Putting The Hard Back Into Hardware

Somewhere along the line, hardware has turned soft. It’s hardware, not software. We think a true hardware store should resemble one, not an extension of the hardware aisle in the supermarket.  

Our latest brand campaign reflects this by pledging to ‘Put The Hard Back Into Hardware’.

We are the place that really understands quality hardware, service and advice. With trade integral to our DNA our new brand campaign talks to our strengths in servicing both the tradie and home renovator. 

So…if you like to tackle the tough jobs in the right way, with the right gear, come to a place that’s putting the ‘hard’ back in hardware.

Go where the Tradies Go…Home Timber & Hardware.
