Hannington-Gilbert was founded in 1965 and became a limited company, incorporated in in 1983. Between 1972 & 1999 it was a partnership of Clive Gilbert and Alan Watson, occupying a shop and stores in Queens Road, Hastings. After Alan’s retirement Keith Wells became a director having started with the company as an apprentice. In 2011 Clive’s sons Max and Dave became company directors having worked with the company for many years and our base of operations was moved to a new workshop and office at Northridge Park. In 2015 Keith retired and his position was passed on to Peter Chapman who had also started with us as an apprentice and risen through the ranks.
