Notes to Editors

  1. Russums was established in 1830 as a brush manufacturer supplying the steel and coal industry. Post war production of lorry covers, tarpaulins and items made from canvas led to Rotherham College approaching Russums to make knife wallets for the staff and students. Such was the success of the wallets, that the College then asked them to source the knives to go in the wallets and so began the business suppling the hospitality and catering industries that Russums is known and respected for today.
