Mr. Dixon said, “Since Hatmill was founded 12 years ago, the company’s growth and success have been beyond my wildest dreams. It is such a proud moment to hand over Hatmill.

“Moving ownership into the hands of my great team ensures that Hatmill’s ‘Teal’ culture and values ​​live on. This was one of the most important factors for me as I considered a next chapter for the company.

“It’s a key differentiator between Hatmill and our competitors. Our customers value the difference it makes to them. It affects our ability to attract and retain the best talent in the industry. I firmly believe that this next chapter is a Company owned by employees. ” is just a reward for the hard work and talent of our brilliant team.
