Meet the Team
Management and sales
In Sept 2016 I celebrated 20 years at Coopers! I started straight from college as van boys mate – I’m now the Manager. I can’t imagine doing anything else now – it may be a family business but I genuinely feel part of it.
What I think customers value about Coopers: Our happy family feel, our localness, our great customer service. Above all our value for money.
What the rest of the team say about Darrin:
” Darrin has such a grasp of the detail of great customer service. His attention to detail really pays off – customers feel confident that we will deliver what we promise when we promise it.”
“Darrin has an encyclopaedic knowledge of whats available and seems to be able to make sure that every customer gets what they want”
“Darrin is friendly, a great organiser and has fantastic product knowledge – what more could you want?”
“Darrin is amazing. The business simply wouldn’t be what it is today without him.”
“Everyone at Coopers goes the extra mile, but if you need a mile further than that, Darrin’s your man.”
Dean is a fully qualified plumber with Gas Safe registration. We can arrange for him to do appliance installations requiring gas connections. He is also a skilled kitchen fitter, so we often recommend him for jobs which require slight kitchen alterations, and for extractor installations.
Gary joined our sales team in 2018.

Deliveries and stock movement
I’ve been part of Coopers delivery team since 1998.
What I think customers value about Coopers: “It all comes down to our personal service and our great prices. Basically they know we are an honest and friendly lot that its nice to do business with.”
What the rest of the team say about Justin:
“Justin just gets on with the business and makes sure that deliveries happen as they should. He knows our products and Bath houses – if Justin can’t get your range cooking into your basement kitchen then it probably isn’t possible!”
“What you see is what you get. A genuinely committed hard worker who always gets the job done. Every business needs a Justin.”
” Justin exemplifies the Coopers brand – committed, passionate about customer service and willing to go the extra mile to deliver the best for every customer. ”
“Justin is efficient and very quick at getting things moving!”
“Can reach places with range cookers and American fridge freezers that other delivery men dare not go.”
Paul joined the family business straight from university way back in 1973. He served his time on the shop floor but is now mostly to be found behind a desk upstairs.
What I think customers value about Coopers: “I believe in offering every customer a personal, fair and value for money deal. I want customers to leave us feeling that buying stuff was a pleasurable experience not something to be endured”
What the rest of the team say about Paul:
“The Boss. Always getting the best deals for our customers.”
“Paul is simply the fairest man I know and has business acumen in spades. He’s made Coopers what is it today – a great local shop offering great prices and even greater customer service.”
” Paul likes to play the grumpy old man but he’s got a heart of gold – and is definitely the backbone of our success. He cares about customers and spends his days screwing the best deals out of our suppliers so that we can offer great products at great prices.”
” Paul is a surprise! He’s a tough businessman with a soft centre. He’s principled, honest and generous and cares passionately about both business and his staff.”
