BARBADOS LUMBER COMPANY founder Amory Phillips is dead.
The former president of the Barbados Turf Club and chairman of the Barbados National Bank was 76.
The former senator, who died today, recently retired in 2008 from the Lumber Company, which became a household name in the north and the outskirts of Bridgetown, with a bustling operation at Waterford.
In 2003 on the occasion of Barbados Lumber Company’s 30th anniversary, Phillips said the enterprise came into being “fighting tooth and nail to survive in a climate where black businesses, especially of that nature, led a very precarious existence”. (MK)
