UK Brush Manufacturing Since 1946

Widdops Brush was established in 1946 as Charles Widdops and later incorporating F. DeCourcy in 1976 to become Widdop de Courcy. Since then we have designed and manufactured industrial roller brushes, strip brush including draught excluders & cable entry seals, whilst also continuing to produce the hand drawn brushes for which Charles Widdops was best known for.

Still manufactured to this day at our dedicated factory in Bradford, West Yorkshire, as part of Bentham & Holroyd we also boast precision engineering and fabrication facilities along with a full design service which enables us to offer rapid turnarounds for purpose designed units, custom brushes and prototypes whilst maintaining highly competitive prices.
