James Bedford has been under the current family ownership since 1974 but has been established as a Yorkshire manufacturer for over 100 years. Having passed through 3 generations since our early days, the principles of quality, value and customer
service are as strong
today as when
Ernest Howker
proudly took up
the reigns
over 40 years

James Bedford is committed
to providing jobs and revenue
to the Yorkshire region and
maintains a 3,000 sq. ft. base
on the outskirts of Leeds,
employing a dedicated team
of 30.
