As 2018 draws to a close
All of us at Courtney & Co wish to thank everyone for their kind and on-going support. It is really appreciated and has allowed us to do so many new things. In fact, we have had a busy year, but it is only looking back that we realise quite what we have been up to. For over the past 12 months we launched buttons made of Codelite® (milk casein) after a 45 year gap in the UK; added a range of 18L shirt buttons; extended the range of tailoring buttons to include 44L coat buttons and even made some horn buttons! We have much more to do and look forward to developing our range in 2019. Hopefully, it will be the year when horn buttons will be commercially produced once more.
To do so, we are investing in new machines and premises and aim to launch the ‘James Grove Heritage Centre’ in which we aim to showcase much of the company’s heritage that we acquired 6 years ago together with more material we have obtained since. The new centre will also serve as a place of reference for people to come and inspect old pattern books and dies, understand the art of button-making and find out more about a company that was once the largest horn button maker in the world.
But for now we wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy, prosperous and peaceful New Year 2019.
