History: Hancock Corfield and Waller Ltd. were originally established in Bermondsey in 1891. Their business was printing on metal. Multi-colour printing on metal is a highly specialised reproductive process and they manufactured large enamel signs, which were commonplace all over the UK. Many of the customers exported all over the world so their products were found throughout the world by the early 20th century.
Among customers they supplied were Booth’s Gin, Bovril, EverReady Batteries, Flower’s Ales, Hartley’s Jams, Murphy Radio, Mars Confectionary, Whiteway’s Cider and more.
Another product they manufactured were waiter trays, which created a very wide customer base but especially within the drinks and tobacco trade.
From the manufacturing base in Mitcham, the company began to supply other related items to their customers. Mr Waller joined the company in 1918, by which time the company had added ceramic items to the range forming working partnerships with Stoke on Trent potteries. There was a slight interruption in this type of production due to the factory’s supply of metal articles to the forces, particularly specialising in water-bottle – presses on the machines that had formerly embossed show cards or shaped waiter trays.
Since 1978 we have been supplying and producing branded Point of Sale Products/ bespoke promotional merchandise mainly to the food and drink industries, specialising in promotional ceramics. We offer a wide selection of products that range from Ceramic Jugs and Tankards, Promotional Mugs, Trays, Umbrellas, Ice Buckets and much more.
Philosophy: Our aim is to maximise high customer satisfaction and maintain good relationships with suppliers. Based on our knowledge and experience and judging by the quality of our clientele base, we feel we have a very good standing in the market place. Hancock, Corfield & Waller Ltd aims to be regarded as competent, reliable and ethical supplier of POS materials. We are committed to offer the best customer service and prices possible and in return pride ourselves on having a high level of repeat business and returning customers.
