Su-Bridge Pet Supplies started life in 1971, when Brian and Sheila Manning operated boarding kennels and found that many owners returning from holiday hadn't the time to shop for pet food. The Mannings began to supply a bag of dog food to every pet owner, and the business grew from there literally.
From its humble beginnings in a chicken shed, Su-Bridge has recently seen completion of a third warehouse, new office block and a new loading bay for lorries that deliver supplies daily, with plans also underway to increase space in the retail area. It's all a long way from the one-man-in-a-van days, when Brian Manning trundled out in his transit van delivering sacks of feed and driving the sales rep around the area. Now 35 staff man the offices and eight Su-Bridge lorries take to the roads every day, making the transit van a distant and very fond memory.
Although the dog food is still there, the range of products offered by Su-Bridge has grown and diversified over the years to meet every possible animal requirement including feed, bedding, grooming, clothing, toys and treats. A particular success is Su-Bridge's own brand of dog food EXTRA SELECT, and their own range of rabbit, hamster, guinea pig and wild bird food, all available in handy pre-packed versions.
Originally taking its name from the Mannings' two daughters, Susan and Bridget, Su-Bridge is now run by Brian and Sheila's son, Ian, whose hard work has transformed the business into the success it is today. 40 years in the business and still going strong, Su-Bridge attributes its success and longevity to valuing every customer, regardless of spend, and going the extra mile really is second nature.
