Hillbrush set for 100th Birthday

Hillbrush gets set for 100th Birthday celebrations

2022 marks the 100th birthday of Hillbrush, the UK-based manufacturer of traditional brushes and specialist cleaning tools, and a jam-packed year of celebrations is planned.

A new logo has been developed for the company to reflect this significant milestone, with a commemorative book written by chairman Philip Coward reflecting on 100 years of the family business to be launched in January. Mid-summer will see staff celebrations and several fundraising initiatives in aid of the Royal Warrant Holders Associations Charity Fund.

A special reception will be held for customers and suppliers in September 2022 at the company HQ in Mere. Commemorative items, including a specially designed ‘birthday brush’ will be for sale in the Hillbrush visitor centre shop throughout the year.

Founded in 1922 by brothers Fred and Bill Coward in rural town of Mere in Wiltshire, Hillbrush is still family owned and run. The company originally manufactured brushes for the dairy and agricultural industries and in 1981 Hillbrush was granted a Royal Warrant to supply traditional brushes to the Royal Households and retains the Warrant to this day.

David Hagelthorn, Head of Marketing at Hillbrush commented: “Hillbrush is a British manufacturing institution that has innovated and diversified with the times but stayed true to its family values. We are all very excited about next year’s 100th birthday and the marketing team is working on a number of projects to celebrate this fantastic achievement with both staff and customers.”
