About Us

Where we started...

The Klyne Group was founded by Risa and Sammy Klyne over thirty years ago in Manchester, England. Originally trading from a market stall, the Klynes soon realised that more opportunities lay in the wholesale arena, they began specialising in wholesaling major brands predominantly within the DIY, gardening and Household sectors. The company grew steadily over the following twenty years, expanding its reach into overseas markets as far afield as the USA, Australia, and continental Europe.

On the 12th of February 2006, The Klyne Group suffered a major setback when we suffered a devastating fire at our Head Office and primary Distribution Centre in Walkden, Manchester. This cataclysmic event highlighted the need for us to diversify our operations and over the following years we launched a number of companies and brands in different markets ranging from Baby, DIY, through to Pet Products.

Where we are now...

The Klyne Group moved to its new Head Office and Distribution Centre in January 2014. Our new home in Old Trafford, Manchester, spans 13 acres and comprises over 300,000sqft of warehousing and 40,000 sqft of office space which include design and photography studios and showrooms to represent all of our brands.

The Klyne Group now includes:
