About Bison

Our story started in 1975 when Richard Browning founded Pioneer Panels. From these simple beginnings as a sheet material supplier, the business added more product lines to better serve our original customers, and evolved into a new company called Southampton Tools during the 1980s.

In 2006, with an ever-growing customer base, we re-branded to Bison. This new brand opened up fresh opportunities for entering into new markets, providing a product range better suited to our growing Mechanical & Electrical customer base.

Today Bison is a recognised nationwide supplier to the M&E and Building Engineering Services marketplace, with first tier supply relationships in place with many of the UK’s largest contractors. Our operations are central from our Head Office in Southampton and we deliver guaranteed service levels throughout the UK.  We’re constantly innovating, developing and expanding.  Customer focussed, continuous innovation and a passion for people are our hallmarks.
