E W & P A Nicholson is a family run business established in 1976 by Eric and Pat Nicholson, in Cockermouth.
Hiring vans and operating JCB's they soon acquired their first wagon painting it purple. As time went on Eric and Pat changed the company colours from a light blue to the Gentian blue that we still use today.
Woodside Farm, Dearham, was acquired in 1985 when the business began to outgrow the Cockermouth site. The company continues to operate from both sites.
In 1988 Nicholsons acquired J C Lee coal merchants and has continued to grow by acquiring other coal Businesses.
