A. E. Harris Now Moved out of JQ

Sadly, after 140 years in the Jewellery Quarter A. E. Harris moved out and handed the property over to the developers a few weeks ago.

The bulk of the machinery had already moved before the Lockdown, and as things eased, we put together a team to finally clear the balance of the site.

I, like you am ‘shielded’ and as yet I have not got to the new premises in West Bromwich to see things working, I only saw an empty shell many months ago. Having personally worked in the Quarter for 43 years, it will be very strange driving to work in West Bromwich, and I suspect on a few occasions, I will head for Hockley like a homing pigeon.

It has always been a joy meeting up with you at the various breakfasts over the years, and I wish you and Mark continued good health and prosperity,

John J T Sloyan, Managing Director
A E Harris & Co. (Birmingham) Ltd
