Filofax UK

Two weeks ago I went to visit Ken Ebenezer, MD of Filofax UK, one of Burgess Hill's long-standing companies and providers of employment. Filofax are the specialists in producing personal organisers.

I discovered that the company brand is alive and thriving. Filofax has refined its focus over the past 15 years and now appeals to a younger clientele, more often females, between 16 and 30. Products are made in India and China for Letts, the sister company who took over Filofax about 10 years ago. The brand name Filofax stands virtually alone in the market. There are other brands who produce organisers but they are much smaller and less well known.

Burgess Hill is the UK headquarters of Filofax UK, and currently employs around 45 people, most of whom live locally in the town. The company grew out of the company called Topps of England in the 1970s.

Set in a modern building on two floors in Victoria Gardens, Filofax is one of the most well known company names in the area. Ken Ebenezer has been there for only a short time but speaks well of Burgess Hill and the company's situation. Filofax also has an International Office and two flourishing retail outlets in Central London.

My thanks go to Ken and also to Barbara Baker for their hospitality.
