James Stevenson & Son was founded by the late Alex Stevenson in the local village of Kells, just outside of Ballymena. Sadly Alex died when coming home from a funeral on the 24th June 1931.


The second generation was his son William who ran the business after his father had died along with his son James, the third generation.


The business moved to Linenhall Street in Ballymena.
