Traditional values, family run...


EFA was established in 1974 by Graham Palmer and his father Harry Palmer, to supply local trade with specialist materials.  Over the last 48 years the business has expanded to cover Essex, Norfolk and London areas, and more recently offer a national delivery service via the internet.


The business is still family run with Graham's son Craig now running business operations.  We pride ourselves on our commitment to customer service and satisfaction and work closely with our customers to ensure we also remain competitive on pricing and delivery times. 


We have an extensive product range, paying close attention to quality.  With over 40 years of industry experience, we can offer advice on the best materials for your job. 


No orders are too big or small for us, we are happy to take all inquiries.  If there is something specific you are looking for and cant find, give us a call and we can most probably source and supply it to you!

EFA's headquarters and main distribution centre is based in Rochford, Essex.  We deliver products by hand to the Essex, Norfolk and London areas, but can also deliver nationally with our next day courier service.


We also have a trade counter which is open daily to all customers if you prefer to buy and collect in person.  Click here for directions and opening times.


We source directly from manufacturers, by cutting out the middle man we are able to pass on these discounts to our customers.


Orders can now be placed via our online shop, alternatively you can call, fax or email us your order!
