Our History

Since the 1950’s, Willard Conservation Ltd has led the way forward in the innovation of conservation tools and equipment for use in the conservation of fine art, textiles and historic media.

The Willard family business began making conservation equipment in the 1950’s when Jack Willard, an engineer and toolmaker, produced the very first commercial Heated Spatula in the UK, for a young trainee conservator living in Chichester. This was soon followed by requests from Conservators across the UK for additional tools.

The company is now lead by Paul Willard who joined the family business in the early 1980’s and worked closely with his Father, Jack Willard for more than 25 years. Paul and his team of specialist Technicians continue to manufacture all Willard products at our UK workshops to ensure only quality products are given Willard stamp of approval.
