Kent Blaxill directors celebrate 175 years

Still working at Kent Blaxill today are three generations of Blaxills, all from different branches of the family – Simon Blaxill, managing director, Tony Blaxill, director, and Ben Blaxill, who has taken on a project to establish central distribution for the company. From the Kent side of the company, Ben Kent and Elizabeth Cash, née Kent, are directors.

Simon Blaxill said: “Although over the centuries the company has grown from a small Colchester shop into a multimillion pound business with branches across East Anglia, it still remains a family run business.”

A series of events are planned for the year ahead to mark the anniversary.
