WHW is, was and always will be a family business and, like all families, the company has expanded, evolved and welcomed new members.
William H. Wright’s original intention was to manufacture and supply a reasonably priced, good quality acrylic and a range of teeth that would provide for the high demands of NHS dentures and appliances at the time.
Today his son’s, daughter and grandchildren, together with a loyal and hardworking workforce, have maintained this concept whilst still adapting and moving with the times. With the family, the factory and stores based in Hull, WHW has progressed over the years to increase its manufacturing capacity as well as its products for resale through its ever growing list of suppliers.
With sales and training based in East Sussex, including a fully equipped laboratory and digital suite, WHW can now offer customers the widest variety of goods and services. Irrespective of our size and the amount of products we sell, we are still governed by the singular and all-encompassing notion that customer service comes first.
This website will familiarise you with the company, from the Wright family at its head to the many suppliers who have chosen to be associated with a business that has always put its customers first. Take your time to browse through our website as we think you’ll be both pleased and surprised to find out just why we’re so proud of who we are and what we do!
We thank customers old and new, who have supported us on our journey and assure you that the ride has only just begun.
In recent years, we have been the fortunate recipient of many trade awards. This includes being the multiple award winner of the DLA's Laboratory Trade Company of the Year, several acknowledgements for our customer service levels and technical support provider of the year. Our most recent award recognises our services to British dental manufacturing.
