About Derwas of Welshpool
Today's Derwas business, run by Kaye Derwas, dates from the 1950s when her grandfather established the ironmongers 'Denbigh & Co' in Welshpool High Street. In 1961 Kaye's grandfather set up a new business for her father and his brother, called 'Derwas Bros Agricultural Ironmongers and Seed Merchants'. This was based at 4 Berriew Street, Welshpool.
The business traded in tractors and farm machinery as well as ironmongery and seeds to farms in the area.
Kaye joined the business in 1992 and worked alongside her father and her brother Adrian - (aka Percy Derwas) a qualified agricultural engineer and who had been with the company since 1986.
Kaye developed the heating and cooking side of the business, introducing new products to customers including stoves, cookers, woodburners and fireplaces. In 1999 we moved to Bookers former premises on Henfaes Lane, Welshpool but still sells loose hardware, nails, nuts and bolts and four candles and fork handles, O's and hose and lots of other bits and bobs along side the fireplaces, stoves and garden machinery.
We still have many valued customers who remember our name from the old days and who know that we still stock all the hard-to-find items of hardware and ironmongery for their farms, gardens and estates. We've been a Rayburn main dealer since 1961 and we still have a full range of spares for ranges of that vintage. There aren't many places left who can say that!
