Jim Young, co-founder of underlay company Ball & Young, died on 7 July. He was 86.
'Jim, along with Martin Ball, set up the company in 1983 making Ball & Young a leader in the world of rubber underlays. After great success the company was sold to British Vita in 1989. A real gentleman of the carpet trade, Jim Young's name lives on in Ball & Young,' says Ann Shaw, Ball & Young sales director.
He is survived by two sons and a daughter.
