Rastrick moved to West Bromwich to work on his own.
1819 Rastrick was the resident managing engineer of a new company, Foster, Rastrick and Co, built alongside the Stourbridge Iron Works, a partnership with James Foster. Rastrick moved his family to Stourbridge
1819 John Bradley went into partnership with John Urpeth Rastrick to expand John Bradley and Co's involvement in machinery production. John Urpeth Rastrick became the managing partner in the firm of Bradley, Foster, Rastrick and Co, iron-founders and manufacturers of machinery, at Stourbridge, Worcestershire, taking the principal engineering part in the design and construction of rolling-mills, steam-engines, and other large works
1821 A new foundry was built to cope with the expansion of the business. The company produced: bedsteads, cooking plates, wheels and tools, rails and railway sleepers.
Presumably at some point this became John Bradley and Co again.
