Naylor Gardenware buys Clough Mill ceramic hardware business

The ceramic gardenware business of Clough Mill Ltd has been bought by Naylor Gardenware, a division of Naylor Industries plc. 

Clough Mill, based in Cirencester, Gloucestershire are importers of frostproof glazed garden pots from their factory in Ipoh, Malaysia.

Naylor is a fourth generation family business based in Barnsley, South Yorkshire. The company has been manufacturing clay products since its formation in 1890.  Over the last 20 years, the company has developed a ceramic gardenware business, Yorkshire Flowerpots.

Naylor remain committed to UK manufacturing and the Clough Mill acquisition will complement the company’s manufacture of the Yorkshire Flowerpot range, as well as its Kew planters, launched as a result of the company’s 2012 licensing deal with the Royal Botanical Gardens.

Naylor divisional MD David Cartwright said:

"The acquisition of Clough Mill extends our offering of high quality ceramic gardenware products.  It will allow our discerning customer base of premium quality-oriented garden centre to access a more comprehensive range of finishes and designs from a single source."

The Clough Mill warehousing operation will be relocated to Naylor’s main site in Yorkshire, and administration will be integrated to allow customers to order – and receive delivery – or their requirements across the combined range.
