Dental Laboratories are a big part of the Broughton family history. Philip initially started his apprenticeship in his father John’s business, Broughton-Hackwill in Newbury, England. His brother Paul also worked there, and their uncle David also owned a dental laboratory in Bath. When Arthur Hackwill retired, John partnered with John Tyrrell to form Broughton-Tyrrell. Paul became a partner upon John Tyrrell’s retirement and they ultimately sold the lab. Whilst John has retired, Paul and David continue owning their own laboratories.
