About RBH (Richard Baker, Harrison)

Enhancing Performance, Adding Value and Inspiring Change

RBH helps manufacturers worldwide overcome challenges in the production of complex formulations. Created following the merger of Richard Baker Harrison & Hubron Speciality in 2019, RBH now offers an extended range of services and aims to become a significant force within the wider market.

Underpinning all our operations is a passion for enhancing product performance, to both inspire and deliver change. We are committed to building long lasting relationships with our customers and aim to fully understand the challenges they face. Serving a diverse range of industries, we occupy a particularly important position within the plastic, rubber, coating, adhesive & sealant, composite, ceramic, personal care and polishing sectors.

An ever-evolving business, we are actively pursuing both merger/ acquisition opportunities and new principal relationships. We firmly believe there is an important role to play for medium sized distributers like ourselves, valuing exceptional service and long-lasting relationships. If you are interested in partnering with us and want to join us on our journey to become the distributor of choice, please get in touch.

RBH are a wholly owned subsidiary of the OBG Group of companies. The group includes chemical distribution, plastic manufacturing and pharmaceutical divisions.
