1944 Business incorporated
1963 "Sintered Products is the largest power metallurgy company in Europe. Virtually every motor car contains over sixty "Durasint" sintered parts and the company also manufacturers for a large number of companies who require mass production of metal parts cheaply. Output of "Durasint" products is expected to double over the next few years without the aid of additional plant, because more and more larger products will be manufactured for a wider range of industries. At the other extreme, sintered porous nickel elements are now used in a new type of battery cell for hearing aids, transistor radios and air sea rescue wireless equipment."
1979 GKN acquired Sheepbridge Group.
