A long established, family owned company, with a very proud marine history. The foundations of this company commenced in 1928 when the late Tom Williams, at the age of 14, started working on Hartlepool’s deep sea trawlers. Tom eventually created a record of 73 years sailing from his home port when in 2001 at the age of 87 he finally retired from the sea.

“HMS” had progressively expanded from the original commercial fishing, to encompass all supplies to a “UK” & “Worldwide” customer base from “Commercial Shipping” to “Offshore Oil and Wind” to “Leisure Boating”. HMS now has 4 divisions¬† “Hartlepool Marine Engineering”, “Boat Building”, “Hartlepool Marine Supplies”¬† “Nautical Giftware”

After historically being based at the Hartlepool docks, we had to relocate to 2 sites at Hartlepools Brenda Road Industrial Estate.
