T. Hadley & Co was founded in 1895 by Thomas Hadley, then passed to his grandson Les Hadley in the late 1940’s. In 2016 the company was acquired by N. E. Downing (Blackheath) Ltd. based on Long Lane, Halesowen. Les Hadley and Doris Downing (wife of N. E. Downing) were first cousins so its nice to think the company has come back under the family umbrella.
After being located in New John Street, Blackheath since the early 1900’s, the office was relocated to more prominent position in Blackheath High Street in 2010.
