Ashley Iles

In the autumn of 1949, a pattern maker named Ashley Iles gave up his day job and set out on his own to make and sell tools. He began by renting a small workshop in Sheffield for five shillings a week and ended up with a factory making carving and woodturning tools with a brand known worldwide. Today the company is run by two of his sons, Tony and Barry, with the help of Tony's wife, Christine, who as Company Secretary, looks after the administrative and clerical details.
