The company was established in 1885 by John Brockhouse as a spring and axle maker, employing 8 men. Within 3 years the company had expanded and subsequently moved to the 5.5 acre site in Howard Street, West Bromwich, they still occupy today.
In the 120 years since the company has grown to become one of largest engineering employers still based in the West Midlands. The company is a supplier of industrial components (Forgings) to many industries.
