1836 Mr. Neilson’s services as an all-round practical engineer were called into requisition for the management of a new blast furnace establishment, that of Summerlee, Coatbridge. He was the junior partner in the firm formed to start the works, and the other members of the firm were his father (John Neilson), and Messrs. George and John Wilson, of Dalmarnock and the Hurlet Alum Works.[1]

The firm was long known as Wilsons and Co.

c.1870 Wilsons and Co ceased operation and the works were taken over by the Summerlee Iron Co
