About Us

Charlesworths specialise in high quality, small quantity plastic injection & compression mouldings in all thermoplastic and thermosetting materials. Willie J Charlesworth first set up business 1897 in Washwood Heath Birmingham producing small tools and bicycles. Before long he was machining plastics plugs & sockets for the emerging wireless industry. This lead to him forming Charlesworth Mouldings with three of his sons, Percy, Leslie & William. By 1941 with the retirement of his father, Percy with his son Cyril set up on their own as Charlesworth & Son which over 70 years later is still being run by his family.
