Smith Brothers Stores exhibiting at InstallerSHOW 2024


Make a note in your calendar to visit the UK’s oldest and largest independent HVAC merchant at 2024’s InstallerSHOW. Smith Brothers Stores have committed to one of the largest stands at next year’s show to showcase the business, including their own-brand and ACR offering to a wider audience.

Smith Brothers predominantly supplies the commercial and industrial mechanical services sector, with crossovers in the domestic market. The business specialises in the distribution of pipework, valves and air conditioning, along with all associated fittings, tooling and ancillaries. With origins dating back to 1897, Smith Brothers have significantly increased their product portfolio and geographical coverage since the turn of the millennium, operating 20 branches across the UK with locations ranging from Southampton to Dundee.


Smith Brothers introduced an own-branded range of products to the marketplace in May to offer HVAC installers a quality and affordable alternative to market-leading brands. Aptly named CORE, the range was devised using SBS’s solid foundations, knowledge and supply chain expertise gained throughout a 125+ year trading history.

HVAC installers were at the forefront of the brand’s conception and early decision-making. Each manufacturer and product were selected to ensure the range offers true value without compromising quality and efficiency.

CORE already possesses an extensive portfolio, including copper fittings, ball and butterfly valves, tools, brass and malleable clips, channel components, flange packs, weld rods and fasteners – with much more due before the end of the year and into 2024.

You will find CORE products at all Smith Brothers branches. The range is also available to order for collection or delivery via our eCommerce platform,, where, in addition to ordering online, you can also see stock availability, view technical documents and manage your SBS account 24/7.

The CORE range will grow and develop through constant 360-degree feedback between customers, manufacturers and staff members alike. For the latest news and product information, visit our dedicated website and LinkedIn page COREbySBS.

Air Conditioning & Ancillaries

Smith Brothers stock an extensive range of air conditioning units manufactured by industry-renowned brands Daikin and Midea. From splits and heat pumps to VRF/VRVs and chillers, Smith Brothers offers a solution for all domestic, commercial and industrial requirements.

Air conditioning and refrigeration ancillaries are also available, including copper tube and fittings, class O insulation, pumps, trunking, tooling, and refrigeration gas sourced from industry-leading brands, including Aspen, Javac, Advanced, Lawton and Fieldpiece.

To complete the service, an ACR expert is present at every Smith Brothers location to offer expert assistance and technical specialists are employed to assist with the project specifications and after-sales.

Smith Brothers have launched their online platform to offer existing customers a more effortless business experience. Before the platform was developed, customers could only deal with the business during working hours. Now, the portal allows users to access their account information, pay invoices and place orders online whenever convenient.

To date, Smith Brothers are the only commercial lightside merchant to show so much live data to the general public, such as companywide and branch location stock information, for example large-size weld fittings, cast iron drainage and steel tube.

Many of the products available to view and purchase are also populated with helpful information to assist customers to make a more educated purchase. This data can also help share vital information with the wider construction industry, wanting to check product quality and standards. Code information such as MPN, Gtin/EAN and TSI are available. Links and documents to Luckins, literature, WRAS certificates, data sheets and much more are also available. Examples of these features can be seen in the links below.
