Parker Pen Factory Newhaven - Lewes Bonfire Night Celebrations

Lewes Patina Carnival Parade »

When I heard that the Parker Pen Factory was being demolished I knew it had to be done pronto before demolition was complete. In its heyday the Parker Pen Factory in Newhaven was a major employer in the town, it closed down in 2009 and had stood abandoned and derelict ever since. Explored with my Son in Law and Grandson.

Even though the place was going through a demolition process, I felt totally safe in there as you can see and understand how all the common H.S.E. rules work for a demolition site. Also you can see how the salvage and recyclables are retrieved from a demolished building and sorted ready for collection.  Its very clever stuff I have to say and I took only photos and left only my footprints. The following text below is Borrowed From Here

“A management buyout in 1987 moved the company headquarters to Newhaven, East Sussex, England, which was the original location of the Valentine Pen Company previously acquired by Parker. In 1993 Parker was acquired by the Gillette Company, which already owned the Paper Mate brand, one of the best-selling disposable ballpoints.

Gillette sold the writing instruments division in 2000 to Newell Rubbermaid, whose own Sanford Stationery Division, became the largest in the world—owning such brand names as Rotring, Sharpie, Reynolds as well as Parker, PaperMate, Waterman, and Liquid Paper. In July 2009, the 180 workers at Parker Newhaven got notice that the factory would be shut down and the production moved to France.”
