1938 Ismay Industries sold its interests in Sterling Battery Ltd and Ismay Cables Ltd[1]. A. C. Cossor purchased Sterling Batteries Ltd[2]

By 1940 A. C. Cossor had purchased the whole of the share capital of Sterling Cable Co[3] and reorganised the company. It is presumed this was the business and plant that had formed Ismay Cables (but do not have a reference to prove so).

1942 Sterling Cable Co Ltd disposed of Sterling Batteries Ltd on profitable terms[4]
