Bira Direct announce new supplier TB Davies

Cardiff based ladder supplier TB Davies are the latest supplier to join Bira Direct. TB Davies are a company with heritage spanning four generations and celebrate their 75th anniversary this year, supplying products for working at a height.

TB Davies have a modern three and a half acre facility in Cardiff Bay where they ensure every fitting, material and solution is carefully designed and stringently checked to keep the user safe when working at a height.


Cardiff company TB Davies (Cardiff) Ltd was founded on November 6, 1945 by a veteran of two world wars, Thomas Brynley Davies. Mr Davies was a Warrant Officer in the Second Battalion of the Life Guards stationed at Windsor Barracks in the First World War.

The Swansea-born man lived in Splott between the wars and had become a prominent businessman. During the Second World War, he was Commandant of the Police Special Constables in Cardiff before joining the RAF and specialising in RAF security.

He made his promise to fellow serviceman Colin Morgan while stationed at a local RAF base. After the war ended, Bryn sold his house to finance the new business, TB Davies.

In the 1960s, Bryn’s grandson Patrick Gray, now Chairman, joined the company to sell the benefits of a revolutionary new product to potential customers: aluminium ladders.

Since then, the business has gone from strength to strength, now a multi-million pound enterprise operating from a modern, three-acre facility in Cardiff Bay and supplying customers across the UK and globally. The company focuses on ladders, scaffold towers, and platform-related safety products, having developed an enviable reputation for quality and service.
