Arnold and Olive’s son Robert Wills took over the business in 1973. Under Robert’s leadership the Company went from strength to strength. With a focus on supporting the UK high street, Robert built a global supply base and a reputation across the industry for manufacturing excellence.
Robert was a passionate community champion and had an unwavering commitment to the people of Uppingham and to the town in which he grew up and where our factory remains today.
He was a remarkable man of immense integrity, phenomenal work ethic and generosity of spirit and it is these values that remain at the heart of how Arnold Wills works today.
