British Wool Acquires Kent Wool Growers Wool Handling Operation

British Wool is delighted to announce the successful purchase of the wool handing operations of Kent Wool Growers (“KWG”) based in Ashford, Kent.  KWG has provided a wool handling service to British Wool on a sub-contract basis for many years.

Following the recent opening of the new British Wool collection centre in Ropley, Hampshire, bringing the Ashford operation under our ownership and control further emphasizes British Wool’s ongoing commitment to providing a quality, reliable and effective service to all producers in South East England.

British Wool will continue to operate from the existing depot in Ashford and to market wool on producers’ behalf returning the true market value for their wool and wishes to thank all producers for their continued support of their organisation.

To arrange wool deliveries, producers should contact the depot direct on 01233 622444.
