"My business today has its roots in the original family business of Wellman Bros, formed by my father Eric and uncle Derek, with their first advert in the Newbury Weekly News newspaper in 1948... Dad was only eighteen. The original business was mainly large timber felling for sawmills in the production of furniture and fencing products. It was a lucrative market and Wellman Bros were a much sought-after partnership." - Tony
