Arrow Woollens for Signs - Sheffield - Nov 2012 - 08-12-2012, 21:04

Woollen & Co Ltd was established in Sheffield in 1883 by Edwin James Woollen, a signwriter and Frederick Ibbotson, a lithographic printer. By 1897 Woollens had become a limited company in Sheffield.

At some point they moved to Love Street and then in 2005 moved to new premises.

In 2008 Woollen & Co ceased trading after 125 years in business following a takeover. However a new company Woollen Signs Limited rose from the ashes and seems to be trading successfully.




























Thanks for looking...
