John Williams & Company 150th Anniversary Company Reunion at Sene Valley Golf Club in Hythe
As part of our 150th anniversary celebrations, John Williams & Company invited past employees and current colleagues from our previous branches, including Wales and Rotherhithe, to come together for a company reunion at Sene Valley Golf Club in Hythe, near Folkestone.
Historical photographs, artefacts and documents were on display; and a presentation showed a collection of old photos depicting work carried out by the company.
The anniversary celebration was a great success and we were delighted to see over 70 people attend the event. Great pleasure was had with the coming together of old friends once again reunited to reminisce and catch up; and the displays brought back many happy memories.
This year, John Williams & Company is celebrating 150 years in business; and its success has not happened by accident. The company is proud of its history and has always recognised that people its most important asset.

A highly trained, skilled and dedicated workforce is also seen as essential for future growth. John Williams & Company believe that there is still a place in this fast-moving world for the old-fashioned values of service, quality and excellence.
Going forward, the company will focus on heritage building and roofing crafts while always remaining willing to embrace new technologies, ideas and materials where appropriate.
