Formed in 1825, the Manchester Brass Founders', Turners', Fitters' and Finishers' Association had 700 members by 1900 and 1000 by 1910. In 1912 it merged with other sectional societies to form the Amalgamated Association of Brassfounders, Turners, Fitters, Finishers and Coppersmiths who in turn joined with the Amalgamated Society of Engineers to form the Amalgamated Engineering Union in 1920.
