I live in Sheffield and used to be in regular contact with Ogden's most days as we were part of Imperial Tobacco. I worked at J & H Wilson snuff manufacturers which closed in 1989 and business transferred to Liverpool.
I was wondering if anyone remembers the 'snuff' connection we had or worked at Ogdens who's name I'd remember in the offices there.
I remember visiting Ogdens once and was impressed with the clock tower (I believe it's apartments now) and the huge collection of cigarette cards they had on the staircase.
I also remember all the good perks we had, 200 free fags every 4 weeks, productivity bonuses and annual 'gift' bonus! What company these days would do that.
I can still remember their phone number 0151 263 2231 and the address was Boundary Lane, Liverpool L69 1DT how sad is that???
