Eggar Forrester has been providing services to businesses and individuals for over 130 years. For the last 45 years it has been run by members of the Willcox family.
It is as shipbrokers that the name Eggar Forrester is still best known internationally, especially in India, the far east and Canada: a few years ago its team was one of the largest in the world having acquired the even older shipbroking company, C.W. Kellock, which added new areas of specialisation in Admiralty Court sales and ship valuation.
Paul Willcox has pruned back this side of the business and now services only those clients whom he can cover personally. He is supported by Michael Brace and Simon Robinson, who serve as directors on the subsidiary board while each running their own independent shipbroking businesses: between them the three offer over 100 years of experience in the shipping industry.
