Our Mission

Avocet Hardware Group under the stewardship of the Jain Saigal family, have made it our priority to be the foremost supplier in the industry for door and window hardware and high security cylinders. Based on a bedrock of high quality products, superior customer service and high stock levels, Avocet will continue to develop our product portfolio and investigate new solutions to provide a complete service.


Our journey began with the acquisition of Eliza Tinsley Hardware in 2006. An established business with a rich heritage in all manner of fencing and hardware, this purchase set the tone for our future…buy established businesses with potential for expansion. In 2012 our next buy was door and window hardware giant, Avocet. With a glowing reputation amongst the fenestration industry and with the addition of the award winning ABS high security cylinder amongst its portfolio, Avocet sat perfectly with our ambitious growth plans.

At the back end of 2019 and early 2020, despite the pressures of the COVID pandemic, we made our next purchase by acquiring Greenman Garden Tools. This small boutique family firm presented us with a unique challenge of taking an established business, but small in national recognition, to a major player in the garden tool manufacturing world. And so in 2020, we needed to formalise all of these businesses and bring them under one united umbrella and therefore the Avocet Hardware Group was born.


The company continues to do the things that made it stand out from the competition and do them extremely well.

Every step of the product cycle is handled directly by Avocet. Products are designed, developed and tested in the UK Avocet continues to strive to evolve as a sophisticated innovator, manufacturer and distributor. The company is committed to delivering quality engineered products to the UK window & door fabrication market and its rapidly growing multiples & merchant division.

Avocet constantly revisits and re-examines everything it does with a view to improving upon it. A product development programme continually looks to introduce new products to market – products that are developed through a combination of input from Avocet’s highly experienced sales and innovative technical teams, and customer feedback.
