Box­all & ed­mis­ton Ceases Trad­ing

Shooting Gazette - - Shoot Briefing News -

Shrop­shire-based gun­maker Box­all & Ed­mis­ton has cited ‘eco­nomic rea­sons’ for its clo­sure, an­nounced in Novem­ber.

In a state­ment on the gun­maker’s web­site, founders Peter Box­all and james Ed­mis­ton said: “Dur­ing the past nine years we have had the plea­sure of man­u­fac­tur­ing ex­quis­ite guns for some ex­tremely ge­nial clients, for which we thank you all.

“How­ever, Box­all & Ed­mis­ton has been ‘all con­sum­ing’ and there comes a time when the work/life bal­ance needs to come into con­sid­er­a­tion. As such, we are go­ing to step back from the front line of the shot­gun world and let oth­ers pick up the chal­lenge…

“We have en­deav­oured to put a good struc­ture in place to ser­vice and sup­port the 200 guns that are out in the field.”

Main­te­nance and re­pair will be of­fered through for­mer em­ployee An­drew Dyke at A.D. Clas­sic ri­fles, based in Mar­ket Dray­ton.
