Administrative / Biographical History
Oldham and Son was founded in 1865 as a general engineering firm in Denton, Manchester, making machinery for the hatting and mining industries. Oldham lamps were well known in the mining industry, and it was dissatisfaction with the quality of batteries supplied for them that led the firm to move into the battery business.
