Taylor and Jones gears up for growth

Taylor and Jones, the UK’s largest reamer specialist, is gearing up for growth after securing funding from Reparo Finance and a team of local entrepreneurs.

The equity investment and management support comes from the team behind Atkinson Walker Saws, made up of local entrepreneurs Nick Alexander, Terry Lee, Mark Stanley and Chris Sellars.

Following two years of consolidation and hard work, the team at Taylor and Jones are now looking forward to the future. 

Tony Egley, managing director of Taylor and Jones, said: “The business had been unloved for some time when we took it over. 

“We have worked hard over the past two years to rebuild confidence in the brand and put the business on firm foundations.

“We knew we wanted to push for growth and we feel the help from Reparo and our new investors will give us the boost and support that we need.”

Chris Sellars, who has joined the board of Taylor and Jones as part of the investment, added: “We know and respect Tony and recognise the value of the Taylor and Jones brand - it has genuine international reach.

“When Tony asked for our support we jumped at the opportunity. As a team we have thoroughly enjoyed the experience of working together at Atkinson Walker Saws and feel that we have a great deal to offer to Taylor and Jones.”
