Established in July of 1999, Essential Hardware Limited (EHL) continues to be the company to trust for all your building needs for almost two decades. This long-standing company
is part of Gafsons Group of Companies, which also operates in Guyana, Barbados and Grenada. When it was first established, Essential Hardware planned to establish a branch in major communities around St. Lucia. Today, apart from its Industrial Estate, Vieux Fort Administrative Offices, Warehouse and Retail Outlet, there are branches in Vieux Fort, Cul D’Sac/ Bexon Highway, Bois D’Orange, Vieux Fort/Laborie Highway, Rodney Heights and Soufriere.
“Our bright new store at Rodney Heights caters exclusively to customers in the North with a wide range of Hardware, Electrical, Plumbing, Household, and Home and Garden products, it is also a Berger Paints Colour Centre”. Mr. Colin Sookdeo, Sales Manager when asked what is unique about the
Rodney Heights Branch, he responded that “we’re providing convenient shopping, offering a wide variety of products in a modern store environment with extended hours, supported by courteous and efficient staff.”
