About Us

Carnroe Supplies was established in 1998 by Hugh O’Boyle, the driving force behind this unique business.  Whilst not your typical entrepreneur, Hugh has successfully built the business through a combination of his understated charm and good old-fashioned hard graft. 


Spotting an opportunity, Hugh diversified the original business as a bicycle retailer into selling items such as work boots and other safety related items.  This laid the foundation for today’s business – one that constantly adapts so that it can offer a broad but relevant product range, with a focus on the best value for money.  


Now a leading supplier to businesses across Northern Ireland and beyond, today the company employs a dedicated, long-serving team of 23 customer service and operational staff.


Experience & Service


With this rich history, has come years of collective experience.  The customer service team is always happy to provide recommendations on products that will best suit your needs, and has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to representing your brand.  Whether it’s advice on logo placements and sizes on corporate clothing, or the best type of PPE protection for your application, the Carnroe Supplies team get to know you as an individual to ensure that they can best meet your requirements. 


Hugh has built his business on developing and nurturing relationships with his customers and this is something that transcends the Organisation at all levels.  There is a strong focus on delivering on promises and you can expect to be greeted in a friendly and down-to-earth way.


Quality Workmanship


The Company continually invests in state-of-the-art equipment, with all graphic design and personalisation, either by embroidery or heat transfer, carried out in-house, so you are guaranteed consistently high standards of workmanship.


Business & Recreation Supplies


For all of these reasons, Carnroe Supplies has become a trusted partner to businesses across a broad range of industry sectors, including hospitality, beauty, healthcare, construction, warehousing, farming, motor trade, sports and security, as well as various divisions within the public sector.


Not only is Carnroe Supplies now online, providing a convenient order / reorder service, the spacious retail outlet in Kilrea is also open to the public, showcasing an array of the company’s vast product range.  This means that, as well as catering for business requirements, Carnroe Supplies can now serve those involved locally in recreational activities, including painting supplies and power tools for home DIY and equipment and clothing for sports and other leisure activities.
