Administrative / Biographical History
The English Velvet and Cord Dyers' Association was incorporated in April 1899, for the purpose of amalgamating fourteen firms engaged in the cotton velvet and corduroy dyeing industry. Most of the associated businesses were located in or around Manchester and Salford, or in Yorkshire. Founders of the company included Henry Worrall of Ordsall Dye Works, Salford, and Harvey Heywood of Spring Vale Works, Middleton, Manchester. The company traded until the late 1950s, when its last name was E.V. Industrials Ltd.
