The Century Story
Hands-on, down on the farm…
Stephen Basey-Fisher started out renting buildings on the family farm near Halesworth in Suffolk, after graduating from Writtle College in Essex. Stephen, the eldest of three boys, is descended from Norfolk geese drovers and began his working life on his family’s 350-acre farm.
With his farming background, Stephen was very used to tackling anything and everything. Working on a farm, you’re the engineer, the tractor driver, the book keeper…
Stephen’s can-do attitude lead him to diversify the business by building a grain store, and got involved in commercial warehousing. Later, he moved into forklift and health and safety training and started his own training company, Century Industrial Training.
From there, he moved back into warehousing opening new sites in Thetford.
And Saxham was born…
In October 2010 Century opened a new £10.5million warehouse just off the A14 in Suffolk close to Bury St Edmunds.
The warehouse was privately financed under a joint venture with Dorel, the world’s biggest nursery products company, having worked with them for the previous 10 years.
