A humorous and often poignant book, John Pellowe’s autobiography reveals how much things have changed in the furniture industry and touches on luck, timing - and good practice: Housing Units had a turnover of around £165 in its first week in 1959 which had increased to over £20million when John retired as managing director in 2000 and all this was built without incurring any debt!
From innocent childhood days to tragedy, from the whirlwind of owning a new enterprise to getting married, growing the business and having a family whilst simultaneously rushing around the UK and sometimes Europe buying stock - time has always been in short supply for John Pellowe as he has tried to achieve more than others.
