The Bowmer Bond story began in 1795 when William Bond began his tape manufacturing business in Morrey, Staffordshire.
In 1844, the business relocated to Alrewas. In 1865, Morton Bond (son of William) bought the Hanging Bridge site near Ashbourne. The Company was known as M Bond & Co. at this time. In 1866, the business established itself at the newly built mill which was initially named ‘Alrewas Mill’ to commemorate the move from the village. The site was later renamed ‘Hanging Bridge Mills’ after the nearby bridge over the River Dove which runs alongside the building and its grounds.
In 1972, John Bowmer & Sons, also a tape manufacturer based in Wirksworth, bought M Bond & Co. This acquisition secured the future for M Bond & Co and was the perfect opportunity for J Bowmer & Sons to enter new markets, increase turnover and acquire more production space.
The two companies merged and began trading under the name of Bowmer Bond. This created the foundation upon which the modern business operates today.
