Charles Bentley & Son Ltd is a Loughborough business. Formed in 1860, the company is still owned by the original Bentley family and originally started out providing brushes for Victorian chimney sweepers. It is now a multi-million pound operation, with specialisms in the equestrian, cleaning and household sector.

Charles Bentley’s success is largely attributed to two factors; knowledge and innovation.
