Established 1855. [1]

1900s Herbert Terry, the founder of Herbert Terry and Sons, began a winding spring business in a terraced house in Redditch in the early 1900s, which very quickly progressed to Terry acquiring its first premises.

1913 Private company.

1917 Advert for spring and presswork. [2]

1919 Advert for spring and presswork service. [3]

1932 George Carwardine, an automotive engineer by trade, began developing a light which involved the balancing of an incandescent light bulb in three planes of movement.

1933 George took the designs of his lamp to Herbert Terry and Sons in order to make the special springs needed for the lamp. The design was viewed as having a great deal of potential and so Terry's licenced the design from George and began to manufacture the Anglepoise 1208, in 1933, which used 4 springs.

1933 Company made public.

By 1935, the lamp was a huge success and a light design was needed for a more domestic application, so the 3 spring Anglepoise 1227 was born. This product is viewed by many as the classic Anglepoise.
