"Former Addis Factory" Hertford Things to Do Tip by Willettsworld

Hertford Things to Do: 31 reviews and 87 photos


These buildings housed the Addis toothbrush factory for some 60 years. They were built in 1935 and were designed by Douglas Hamilton in the modern style. The larger building on the other side of the entrance, built in the same style was constructed in 1955. Addis came to the town in 1920 from London, taking over the site of the Hertford Steam Laundry which stood on this site. In 1993 the company left the town and relocated to Swansea in Wales. Since then several businesses have moved in including Herts & Essex Newspapers Ltd.

Address: Ware Rd.
