R&J PULLMAN ltd

Glove Manufacturers of Stars Lane

 

The glove manufacturing company of R&J Pullman Ltd had a history going back as far as 1814 at Woodstock. The company was incorporated in 1895.

Already with a reputation for manufacturing high-quality leather gloves for generations, the company moved to Yeovil in 1945 when they purchased the Stars Lane factory. They later acquired two further factories in Addlewell Lane and Mill Lane as well as one at Charlbury in Oxfordshire. After the Second World War the company became associated with glove manufacturers and leather dressers Atherton & Clothier in Addlewell Lane.

The company was listed at Yeovil in Edwin Snell's Directory of 1954, Foord's Directory of 1964 and Kelly's Directories of 1968 and 1970. The company closed in the 1970s.
