On 16th December 1898, the Northampton Mercury, now the Chronicle & Echo carried an advertisement on its front page announcing the opening of Ablett Bell’s Ironmongers Shop at the top of Gold Street, Northampton. In 1900 he was joined by the brothers Frank and Harry Jelley, forming a two-family partnership which has flourished for over 100 years. In the early 1900’s Bell produced their own cooking ranges and fires, gas lighting, coal fired coppers, boilers and heating stoves of varying size and design, w.c. suites comprising high level cisterns, decorative wash basins and stands and white enamel baths to name a few and these were expanded again in years to follow.. By 1923, a showroom had been opened in Berners Street, London and in the following years, a new production site was opened at purpose-built facilities on a 3-acre site on the Thornton Estate at Kingsthorpe.
