Paul Bentley Wholesale announces the death of its founder

Paul Bentley Wholesale has announced the death of its founder, Paul Bentley.

Paul Bentley on his 70th birthday.

Established in 1981, the family-run wholesaler is based in Buckley, Flintshire, and offers a large range of confectionery, crisps, snacks and soft drinks – including a school-approved selection – to businesses within a 100-mile radius. The Sugro member also offers export worldwide through trade partners.

Paul’s son Andrew Bentley is managing director of the wholesaler.

Commenting on Paul Bentley’s death, a company spokesperson said: “Without Paul we wouldn’t be flourishing as a company like we do now. He started this company with his wife Sue who both worked hard for endless years and we will continue to work hard to keep his legacy going, like he would have wanted.”

Following the announcement, tributes have flooded in. Former managing director of Sugro Philip Jenkins said: “So sorry to hear that sad news – a thoroughly successful founder of your business and always a gentleman with a wonderful smile.”

Jay MacKay, managing director of HB Clark, added: “Sad to read this. Often sat with Paul and Mrs B at Sugro dos and loved the chat.”
