A Little Bit of History

Today the business of G. Mitchell Ltd is nothing like the one which started out in 1917, dealing in haberdashery, domestic goods and household paint to the businesses and households of Sussex. There has always been a member of the Mitchell family name within the company up until the sad loss of the lone surviving family member David Mitchell in 2009. Since those early days, the familiar G. Mitchell delivery horse has been put out to grass and has been superseded by a very different kind of horse power.

Recently G Mitchell Ltd acquired its sister company Grove Motor Colours, a business which had been trading for 41 years in the Automotive refinish market. The newly named Grove group consists of eight trading locations present in England, Scotland and Wales. The rapid expansion of the Grove group has led to many familiar names joining the Grove family, these include; Hunters of Watford, Sprayshop supplies, Eurocolour and Bodyshop Services.

Each new addition has added to the wealth of experience we see in our people today and by evolving and understanding the needs of both our customers and suppliers over the years, we are able to provide products and services that add significant value to our customer’s businesses.
