Our History

A Wilson and Sons was established in 1860, and as the name suggests the company has been passed down through the generations and is now run by John Wilson.  Being a family run business we have strong traditional values of honesty and trust which have enabled us to build long term relationships with clients who come back to us year after year.

With the next generation after John being his three daughters, 2013 sees the first two daughters to join the company, creating a future for the next generation to come.
