About Us


DAVANT was established in 1989 by David Merrick who started the business working out of a portacabin on a farm in rural Herefordshire selling pipe insulation into plumber’s merchants.

Twenty six years later DAVANT are part of the still privately owned LINTHWAITE GROUP of companies which are firmly established as nationwide manufacturing and distribution businesses into the Plumbing and Building Industry.

As an independently owned business itself, DAVANT takes pride in selling over 5000 insulation and building plastics’ products predominantly into the independent merchant sector.

We maintain very strong stock levels of high quality products and these are distributed from our Distribution Centres, in Herefordshire and Scotland, predominantly on our own liveried fleet of vehicles and drivers. 

2015 has been another successful year with new products coming into the business such as CARBERY OIL TANKS. We always try and listen to our customers and, as a result, there are other new products planned for 2016.

We look forward to the trading year of 2016 and to working closely with you as our valuable customer. 

Core Values Dedicated to customer satisfaction!

The culture and working practices at DAVANT are of the highest standard and have been shaped by a number of influences, most significantly our six core values which underpin everything we do, in conjunction with extensive partnering experience and the importance we place on good communication.

Our core values identify the most important aspects of our work and the approach that we take to people, both customer and employees alike.
