We are closed for Christmas from today until Monday 4th January 2021 when we reopen our works. We are operating an emergency helpline for urgent calls during this period – please call 01332 345569 for assistance.
2020 has really brought home the importance of public time for our communities. We have always thought of the public clock as the ‘heartbeat of a community’ and over our 164-year long history of creating and caring for public time, we are proud to safeguard our community timepieces for future generations to enjoy.
This year has also seen us start an important and wonderful project to categorise our incredible ‘archive’ of records. We receive many enquiries every year for records or information about timepieces we may have a connection with. This will be an invaluable resource of not only timepieces, but events, people and society through the years.
2020 was an ‘award winning’ year for the company too with us taking home three prestigious awards at the Family Business of the Year Awards 2020. We are honoured to have won ‘Manufacturer of the Year,’ ‘Midlands & Central winners,’ and the overall award, ‘Supreme Champions of the Year.’ What a fantastic achievement to receive this recognition and a testament to the hard work put in by the team. This recent article on www.ecclesiasticalandheritageworld.co.uk is a wonderful write up on the awards and what they mean to our company.

The past year tested the company and our team in every way. Pulling together, as a close working family business can, we navigated periods of closure followed by incredible periods of demand. We were not alone, and for many customers and friends, 2020 was extremely hard. We understand this and we continue to ensure we are here to help in whatever way we can to ensure your public time needs are attended to smartly, with passion and care.
We are going to approach 2021 with optimism and confidence. We will continue to care for our team, our customers and their cherished timepieces as long as you need us.
We wish everyone a peaceful Christmas and good health, happiness & a safe 2021.
