J. Stevens and Son
of Tempest Street, Wolverhampton. Presumably press tool makers.
Early 1890s: Joseph Stevens went into business for himself.
Sometime after 1901 Joseph went into making screws
Stevens supplied Wearwell Cycle Co with spokes and screws.
1903 Stevens' engines continued to sell well and a wide range of new models was available. The company was quickly outgrowing the Tempest Street premises and so in February 1904, both of the Stevens companies moved to Fort Works, at the end of Pelham Street.
1904 After the move to Pelham Street both of the Stevens companies joined together to form the Stevens Motor Manufacturing Co Ltd. The new company was registered on 10th December 1904 with a maximum share capital of £5,000.
1906 Stevens Screw Co Ltd was incorporated with premises in Pelham Street, Wolverhampton
