This company built in 1889 at Selly Oak, Birmingham, England, the first factory specifically devoted to enamelled iron sign making.
It had twelve furnaces for fusing the enamel, two scaling furnaces, as the iron required to be scaled and stretched, and a large printing room, plus a huge area for steampipe drying. The company also smelted its own enamels and colour oxides.
A railway siding ran into the factory, which also had its own canal arm and stables.
