Frank Key Group

Frank Key (Nottingham) Ltd. is a large privately owned, independent, supplier of building and timber supplies Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. We have over 100 year history of providing classic service since being founded by Frank Key in 1907.

We stay at the forefront of business by keeping abreast of new market developments and applying ourselves to every customer requirement. In fact, the key to our success is providing customer service second to none. We will order non-stocked items, we stick to our delivery dates and we honour our agreements.

Our customers and staff are key to our business, we don't like losing them! Many of our staff are long standing employees with a many years experience of working in the industry.

All areas of our business including the office, showroom, trade counter, customer warehouse, storage areas and loading bays are expertly managed by our team of 90 dedicated and hard working staff. This is a happy contrast to the situation during World War II when the business was near extinct - for nearly all the employees except for Frank Key were conscripted.
