of Empress Foundry, Cornbrook, Manchester. This was established by Isaac Storey and Sons.

1897 Richard Edwin Hattersley, who had his own business as a toolmaker, also became secretary of Gaukroger, Sykes and Roberts of Halifax.

1900 Hattersley took full control of the business and joined it together with his own company.

1910 Hattersley established United Brassfounders and Engineers by merging 4 companies in similar areas of business to reduce costs[1] :-

The factories at Halifax, Manchester and Woodchester were expanded.

1923 January - The firm transferred their head office and works from Manchester to their works at Ormskirk, Lancashire.[2]. The location was chosen because R. E. Hattersley lived at Asmall House in Ormskirk.

1923 August - Mr R. E. Hattersley purchased from the receiver of the company the following:- The whole of the goodwill of the company; the land, buildings, plants, stocks, and the whole of the contents of the works at Halifax and Ormskirk, together with certain other assets.[3]

1923 Charles Percy Newman purchased the Woodchester Works as a going concern from the receiver of the company and also re-registered the name of Newman, Hender and Co, whose business was absorbed by the United Brassfounders and Engineers in 1910 to resume its independent identity.[4]
