JOHN HEARN H&E

'The trusted source in the south-east

for rare and contemporary hardware since 1896' 

John Hearn Hardware & Engineering is a family hardware business based in Carrick-on-Suir, Co Tipperary, Rep of Ireland.

Since 1896 we have dedicated ourselves to providing a professional and personalised service.

We are passionate about what we do. Our consultancy-based approach ensures we help you make the proper choices for your hardware and engineering needs.

 

Our store is easily accessible with two entrances. One from the centre of the historic town's Main Street, and another from the North Quays on the scenic river Suir. Importantly our new North Quay entrance is adjoining one of the town's main car parks which ensures a leisurely shopping experience from the off. Our extensive product range stretching across our sprawling floors includes general hardware, engineering, farm & garden, paint & decorating, workwear, housewares, giftware and much more. For four generations we are the trusted source in the south-east for contemporary and rare product lines.

POWER TOOLS

 

One crucial advantage of buying power tools from bricks & mortar stores such as ours is the reassurance in the back-up support.

In the event of any issue, you simply  return the product to our engineering desk.  The problem then is ours, and our responsibility to  resolve. And fast.

In contrast, online purchasing as you know often involves products sourced internationally. This can lead to potential complications and costs  with overseas parcel services, not to mention the communication issues.

All our official service agents for our major brands in power tools are all local.

We know them.  And have enjoyed long standing relationships with them all.

 

We act  on your behalf,  and we take great pride in the speed and efficiency this back-up service.
