Welsh Associated Collieries Limited

Administrative / Biographical History

Welsh Associated Collieries Limited was formed in 1930 for the purpose of acquiring the interests of several colliery concerns either by direct ownership of the holding collieries or by holding share capital. It controlled the coal output and distribution of 34 collieries. In 1935 the operations of Welsh Associated Collieries Limited and Powell Duffryn were merged. Through this merger Powell Duffryn gained the subsiduary interest of Cambrian Wagon Works Limited.
