WHERE IT ALL BEGAN

The original Potters family business was founded in 1846 supplying “aids to modern window dressing” to “Tobacconists, confections, bakers, restaurateurs and those desirous of effecting attractive window & counter displays. When in 1939, with the threat of war looming, the family decided there was a limited future for their firm, the new company named Potters (London) Limited was born.

“WE UPHOLD A STANDARD
SET BY OUR FOUNDING PARTNERS
OVER 130 YEARS AGO”

MEL BARR, M.D.

The company survived the war, continuing to trade in London against the backdrop of the Blitz. Increasing demand in the market post-war saw the company relocate to numerous addresses, eventually moving out of London and into their current King’s Lynn location.

A CONTINUING HISTORY

The sense of family has continued in Potters since its origins in 1846. Charles Rowley’s nephew Julian Gander served the company for 50 years, while Walter Fone’s grandson Mark remains on the board today. Mel Barr, Managing Director, has been with the business since its move to King’s Lynn in 1973.

With staff that have been with us for decades and an instilled sense of history, we can ensure we continue the Potters legacy of providing quality packaging.
