SBS Newcastle open day a success

Smith Brothers Newcastle held its open day on Friday 20 July, with customers, staff and suppliers congregating in the 22,000 sq ft premises on the Team Valley industrial estate to celebrate the official opening of the branch.


Attendees enjoyed a hog roast, a free bar and SBS merchandise, as well as a penalty shoot-out simulator. The shoot-out winner was even rewarded with a golden boot trophy from special guest Steve Watson, former NUFC player and current Gateshead FC manager.

Newly appointed branch, manager, Brian Smith, and his team were presented with a cake from the SBS directors to wish them good luck and a successful future with the company. The new branch is already thriving, surpassing expectations and setting excellent foundations for future expansion and growth in the local North East area.

The Newcastle branch has been open since March this year and is a part of a 14 depot network throughout England and Wales. 

Mr Smith said: “Thank you to all our customers and suppliers who attended the event. The suppliers were able to showcase their products and had a great day interacting with staff and customers alike. It was great to see some new faces on the day and they all seemed really impressed with the branch and stockholding.”

SBS director, Martin Denton, added: “It was wonderful to see such a good turnout and to see our staff interacting with our customers at the new branch in Newcastle. This is a huge testament to the team that Brian has assembled in the North East; clearly they are very well respected and liked.

Thank you to both the customers and suppliers who invested their time to be there on the day. I know we all have very busy schedules, so it was appreciated.”
