Graham Waldron to be remembered

An event is to be held to mark the life of Graham Waldron, MCD founder and former Headlam chairman.

He died on 27 May 2020, aged 90. The event, to be held on 16 April, will mark what would have been his 92nd birthday. It is to be held at Hanbury, Bromsgrove from 12pm-4pm. Those wishing to attend are asked to email [email protected].

Waldron first established his relationships and reputation in the flooring industry as the buyer for the Gainsborough Group in the 1960’s and 1970’s. 

In 1977 he was the founder of MCD which became the market leader and most progressive distributor of floorcoverings into the 1980’s. 

He was instrumental as chairman in developing Headlam into the leading flooring distributor in the UK and Europe. He was chairman from 1991 to 1999 and 2006 to 2013, serving as a director for 22 years.

Always a gentleman and often a mentor for many in the industry and beyond, his hobbies were business, a meticulous follower of the stock market plus a longstanding, loyal and active supporter of West Bromwich Albion. He was survived by his wife Doris, two daughters, seven grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.
