Changes to Ramsden Mills Carpet Shops Witham and Colchester 2022

Let start with our company changes this year. Ramsden Mills has a rich heritage in the English carpet world, being one of the oldest suppliers and stores in East Anglia. The company started as a family business with its original owners and although it’s now changed hands, it still remains a family offering today. Started by Ronald and Patricia Addison, they used their expertise to build up the business into one of the leading suppliers of carpet throughout the UK.

After being run successfully by the Addison family for over 60 years, earlier this year Ramsden Mills was sold to another big family name in the carpet industry – Mark Davies and his family in Colchester. With already an extensive career selling carpets worldwide, Mark Davies, alongside his wife Deborah who manages the accounts and sons Bradley and Grant who are responsible for the day to day running of the business, are all individually experienced in the carpet business, took over running Ramsden Mills.

The family are already carpet shop owners, running the Carpet Superstore in Colchester. Known for quality as well their competitive pricing, the Colchester carpet shop has gone from strength to strength. Using his extensive knowledge buying and selling carpets on the merchant side, Mark used his buying power leverage, to establish themselves as quality Colchester carpet suppliers. Offering Colchester customers value for money and a high-quality product.

Building on this local success the next natural step was to acquire Ramsden Mills in Witham. So the Carpet Superstore in Colchester now also comes under the Ramsden Mills names, selling and fitting high quality carpets in Colchester and beyond – meaning this growing business now supplies carpets throughout the Essex region.
