In 1884 Victoria was on the throne, Gladstone was Prime Minister and local businessman Thomas Sutton was opening his tool shop in the heart of the Jewellery Quarter. 125 years later his great granddaughter, Maggie Nichols, is celebrating her company’s incredible achievement with a year of fun events and new initiatives to move the business into the future.
“Reaching 125 years as a family run business is an impressive landmark,” says Maggie. “We might be a long established company, but we have wonderful new ideas and the Suttons team is looking forward to some exciting launches this year.”
The first celebration is the introduction of a completely new Sutton Tools Catalogue. The Catalogue, which has long been an essential tool on the bookshelves and workbenches of the jewellery trade, has been completely redesigned using Suttons’ new corporate red colours in an interesting vibrant format. It now has colour photographs, prices, more products, and new sections, including the successful Precious Metals range launched last year.”
“I am delighted with the new Catalogue,” continues Maggie. “It reflects our sharper image and is now more helpful to the trade, providing additional and clearer information as well as the all essential product prices!”
