BJ Associates Ltd was born as a tool sales company in 1990, owned by Bill and Jan Stocks before it was purchased by Jan's brother, Jeff Hunt in 2004, combining it with his tool & cutter grinding shop, Complete Grinding Services, creating a rare manufacturing and sales business all under one roof.
To enhance the manufacturing capabilities of BJ Associates, Jeff brought on two experienced employees and friends from his previous company, Steve Milczarek, and Dave Tombs, as well as purchasing a new ANCA CNC machine for the workshop. Combining the tool manufacturing division with the sales agencies of Dixi Polytool SA, Kyocera Unimerco and Taegutec among others, enables BJ Associates to offer customers an all-round tooling package.
In 2015, Justin Taylor joined the company, rising to Sales Director having been recommended by a family member, and has elevated the purchasing aspect of the business, as well as helping bring it into modern times.
Being able to keep the business within the family is a trait we love about Jeff and want to uphold this core value going forward.
