Salix Cricket Bats
Built from the Ground Up: A Brief History of Salix Cricket Bats
Younger than some of its competitors, the Salix Cricket Bat Company started life in 1990 with Andrew Kember, ex-apprentice at Newbery Cricket Bats. Since then, Salix has continued to grow, never compromising on their vision: to make exceptional, handmade English cricket bats to a high specification.
With limited resources available for advertising, Salix made a name for itself the best way possible: word of mouth. With elevated levels of professional British craftsmanship in every bat, and a policy to never mass-produce their products, demand for authentic Salix cricket bats intensifies each season.
The Salix system is simple: use the best raw materials and pay attention to the details at every stage in the manufacturing process. This focus on turning raw materials into something utterly unique is what sets Salix cricket bats apart as the most desirable cricket bat brand in the world.
