Our Beginnings

The Company was established in April 1952 by Henry G. Martin and George C. Doe. After George left in 1957, Bill Winslade - late father of our previous Managing Director Adrian Winslade - joined Henry in February 1958 as joint Managing Director. In those early days we specialized in grinding and tinning services for practicing millers, but added knife sharpening and repair services later. In 2000 we moved into our current modern premises where we are able to supply everything required by today's catering professional.


Our Future

Adrian decided to retire in July 2016 and the new owners are keen to draw upon the vast experience and solid reputation that is in place to provide a unique and individual solution that we believe the modern 21st Century customer wants. Operating in a mass market as a boutique player is what sets us aside - whether it is our knowledge or our attention to detail we are committed to providing a genuine alternative to the mass supplier market.

With over 70 years combined catering and professional experience we have a team that are well placed to understand what a customer truly wants.
