The Hudson Reed philosophy is simple......
"We provide luxury bathroom products at desirable prices, combining comfort and reliability with practicality and quality craftsmanship. Our design and manufacturing team work tirelessly to provide you with the best products at prices we believe will be hard to beat anywhere. Innovation is an everyday experience, with Hudson Reed you can share that experience."
This mantra has served the brand well and has fuelled the growth over the last decade to become one of the most recognised bathroom names in the UK. The Hudson Reed brand is owned by one of the largest independent bathroom manufacturers and distributors in the country, Ultra Finishing Ltd.
Ultra Finishing Ltd began life in 1982 offering a plating service but has quickly evolved to be one of the country's largest independent suppliers of complete bathrooms - from taps to towel rails, sanitary ware to showers we have it all. Bathroom furniture and baths, designer radiators galore and mirrors for the perfect finishing touch. Market leading customer service and diversification has seen the company expand over the last 30 years from a small operation in a former air raid shelter to modern premises at the Lancashire headquarters, boasting a state of the art distribution centre employing over 150 people.
Manufacturing in Britain
We are passionate about British manufacturing and all thermostatic showers with the patented Valquest technology and patented Pearlstone shower trays are all made in house. The complete Hudson Reed bath collection has also been sourced here in the UK. Watch the space, more product categories to follow!
Ultra Finishing Ltd is a proud member of the prestigious "Made in Britain" scheme.
Ethical and environmental policy
Ultra Finishing Ltd remains a family operated business with a strong commitment to staff. We regularly contribute to local charities and strive to create a business we can be truly proud of. Employees are given the opportunity to develop further both in and outside of work. Training and funding is made available to support all aspects of welfare and personal development. Cake baking and word work courses have proved popular!
Our environmental policy ensures that we seek to minimize our environmental impact as far as possible. We recycle most of the waste we create and comply with EC regulations on Packaging Waste.
We have developed a range of "Eco" friendly products to promote water saving - look out for the "Eco-flo" and "Eco-click" icons throughout our tap and shower sections.
The Hudson Reed guarantee
Exceptional quality is a key factor contributing to Hudson Reed's success. We offer a 20 year guarantee, unless otherwise stated against manufacturing defects on all products when used in normal domestic applications (excluding serviceable parts, neglect or abuse).
Research & development
At Hudson Reed we are dedicated to bringing you the latest designs utilising the most up-to-date technology. The new product design team benefit from a development system audited to ISO9001 standards, meaning each product is designed, sourced, evaluated and warehoused to the highest standard.
The incorporation of Valquest to the business means the majority of our thermostatic showers incorporate the patented 'Valquest' thermostatic cartridge, providing full thermal protection against scalding and ensuring a constant temperature in the shower. We have a dedicated laboratory where a team of highly skilled technicians carry out all the assembly and testing of the Valquest cartridge on-site.
