Johnsons Sports Seed celebrate 200 years

In 1820 Johnsons Sports Seed was founded by the 17-year old William Wade Johnson, and this year marks their 200th anniversary.

To celebrate the anniversary, the Johnsons Sports Seed team was gathered at the BTME 2020. They were joined by members of the press and over 30 distributors and customers at a special drinks reception that took place on their stand in Harrogate. Together they celebrated the company’s rich and varied history.

Amenity Sales and Marketing Manager Derek Smith from DLF said, “BTME was a fantastic platform for staff and key contacts to raise a glass to mark such a huge industry milestone. Their drive to raise industry standards reflects the position that Johnsons has in today’s market, and this is very much testament to the passion of those involved with the brand over the years. We at DLF, look forward to continuing that ethos for many years to come.”
