Philip founded Reeds in 1973. A true Entrepreneur, he left school at 12 years old, to work 3 jobs, to help support his Mother,as sadly Philip lost his father at the age of 3. Determined to better his life, he worked and saved hard over the years, and purchased the land in Welley Rd, Wraysbury, to start Reeds. With his hard working ethos, his great business outlook, and sheer passion to succeed, he built a firm foundation for the Company and taught everything he knew to his Daughters Julie and Lorraine. Sadly Philip passed away in 2008, but Reeds has carried on, with Philip’s passion of a ‘family business’ being the core of Reeds. Reeds now can proudly say they are a 3 Generation Family Business, with not only Philip’s daughters working in the Company,but two of his Grandchildren, and they carry on, with the same passion and determination as their Grand Father instilled into them.
