Business overview

Northern Irelands No. 1 Wholesaler


John Riddel of Comber, County Down, was orphaned at an early age. His grandmother raised him and his sisters and in due course he was apprenticed to his uncle, the Belfast merchant Thomas Lyle. In 1803 he set up his own hardware business “under the sign of the golden saw” in High Street Belfast. His younger sister Mary married Dr Samuel Musgrave of Lisburn. Both families were typical Victorian philanthropists and their legacy to Belfast include Musgrave Park Hospital, Riddel Hall and the Riddel Ward in the Royal. The old Riddel Warehouse on Ann Street, next to Musgrave Street Police station, is a familiar sight to many.


Six generations later, Riddels is still a family business and continues to supply goods all over Ireland.

In 2007 the company relocated to a new distribution hub on a six-acre site close to the M1 outside Lisburn.
