Nothing ground-breaking to see, just a few shots of earthmoving, structural steel, cladding etc!

I know a few guys on Twitter @AESimpson1919 had requested to see some updates.

More than happy for somebody to share the pictures here ...

Best regards,

Mark

I think it's pretty cool that you continue to make brushes there.

Many thanks Smile

In a world where Far East imports are widely accepted as being the most cost effective alternative, we will continue to strive to keep true hand-made brush making techniques alive & kicking in Great Britain.

Hopefully Simpson & Vulfix will be around for another 100 years manufacturing first class shaving brushes in the traditional way.

Congrats on the new buildings. Have you incorporated a museum and visitors centre so all of us shaving nerds can drop by?

Administration edit: Contacting Mark by either a PM or email is the best way to conduct business with him. Not on the open forum.
