Howorth Wrightson Limited t/a HWL is the merger of two companies:-
Wrightsons Props Store dates back to the 1930's whilst Howorth Theatrical Supplies started in 1968. In 1987 the two firms merged to become HWL. At the same time the main props store and offices moved to Manchester. All the attributes of both companies have been retained and enhanced over the years to become the largest independent props supplier in the North of England.

The firm specialises in period props and traditional values. With over 42,000 satisfied customers over the years the firm looks forward to continuing in this selective market for many years to come.

Over the years many other product lines have been added to the core business as can be seen from this website. The firm now being a mixture of props and scenery hire together with a full range of sales items.
