The MazWell Group – Our Journey
Every company’s story is constantly changing. We see the next chapter of our history being written with the ownership of The Dodge Company Ltd (Dodge UK) passing from the Dodge UK family to The MazWell Group, founded by Craig Caldwell and Robert Mazza. Whilst the ownership of Dodge UK has changed as well as the name, the Quality and Service that everyone has come to know and expect from Dodge UK continues. Under the stewardship of The MazWell Group we will continue to maintain and build upon the foundation on which our company was built.
From Humble Beginnings....
The Dodge Chemical Company began in The United States of America when A Johnson Dodge started the company in 1893. From that day to the present, the Dodge brand and reputation has grown to become one of the most widely known names and industry leaders in the Funeral Service Profession. Our profession of Funeral Directing and Embalming has seen a great many changes over the last 100 or more years. Dodge has proudly responded to these changes; including the formulation, testing and release of the world’s first formaldehyde free arterial and cavity chemicals, the first embalming machine with automatic pressure control and a waterless aspirator.
Arnold and Mike Dodge, the third generation of the Dodge family, recognized that a deep and meaningful understanding of the value of funeral service would be a key to our success. It’s just one of the reasons Dodge company representatives are professionally qualified in all aspects of embalming and funeral service. To further promote the importance of professional education the Dodge Sunshine Seminars were developed to share enhancements in our profession.
Debbie and Kristie Dodge are the fourth generation of family to run the business continuing the tradition of quality and service that the Dodge Company was founded on.
Our Dodge UK story began ninety years later in 1983 in a small warehouse located in Whitchurch, Hampshire. We have since grown from a small 2-person single shop to a company of 3 buildings and 18 team members. With divisions in Australia and Germany, as well as 18 international distributors, we have become recognized as the leader in the field of manufacture and supply of quality embalming chemicals, equipment and supplies throughout Europe as well as globally.
And Looking Forward...
It is our everyday challenge and privilege to support the ever-changing needs and expectations of our customers as you care for the bereaved families, friends and deceased loved ones in your communities.
