2024 marks 100 years since Willie J Charlesworth, our great great grandfather, ventured into the exciting new world of moulding plastics. In 1924 Willie J, with his son Percy, started to experiment with compression moulding the latest resin, O.20 (Owe-twenty). They were the first customer in the Birmingham area of the Damard Lacquer Co, which later become Bakelite. Initially moulding insulated terminals, plugs and sockets for wireless equipment he soon saw the potential for this remarkable new material.
One hundred years later, while we continue to use traditional materials and processes that would be familiar to Willie J, we also strive to utilise the latest advances in materials and processes.
