Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
The Millbrook Engineering Works, Landore [Glandwr] was established in 1825. The works began life as a general engineering concern but quickly started to see the advantages of being located near the neighbouring metal industries. The company began to manufacture plant for the copper industry and later became renowned for the manufacture of plant and equipment for the tinplate industry. The works became particularly well-known for the Millbrook Pickling Machine which was installed in many tinplate works both in the Swansea and Llanelli districts and abroad.
The firm operating the works when it was founded was the Millbrook Iron Company. In 1901 the Millbrook Engineering Company was registered.
