Trade Information

Hannants is a family business, established in Lowestoft in 1890 and now into the fourth generation. Your guarantee of service...

The wholesale side of our business started in the 1960's when we supplied Frog kits to many of the model shops in our area of the country. It really took off in the late 1970's after we became the distributors for Microscale decals. Demand for the decals grew and then our customers wanted the kits as well. It grew from there. Later we started importing more decal ranges, kits and accessories from around the world and we became the main importers for many ranges. We also started to wholesale more and more ranges that were imported to England by other importers.

We supply the leading model shops in many countries. 

If you already sell models or want to add them to your existing business we can supply you with all the items we have on our website. 

We can only supply to 'bricks and mortar' shops. No internet only shops sorry.

You can place items we do not have in stock on Backorder so that when they come into stock they will be reserved for you. When they come into stock you will be sent an email to tell you that they are in stock. If you do not order the available Backorders within 2 months they may be cancelled so we can sell them to other customers so please be sure to order regularly.
