As you may know, John Smedley has remained a family owned business for over 225 years. During recent years John Maclean has played a pivotal role in the company, but felt the time was right to relax his duties as Vice Chairman and take up a new role as President of John Smedley ltd.
As a small token of the company’s appreciation, John was presented with a luxury yacht – something he could maybe take over to the Mediterranean during the British winter – as long as the waves don’t get too choppy!
As ever John being a great sport jumped at the chance to test his new vessle on the dam located at the John Smedley Mill here in Derbyshire. “Safety First” I hear you say, well no need to worry, our Sales Director John Day was on hand ready to dive in should the need have been.
