1920 Director of S. Smith and Son [1]

1923 Mr C. P. Newman purchased the Woodchester Works of the United Brassfounders and Engineers, as a going concern for the receiver of that company and also re-registered the name of Newman, Hender and Co, whose business was absorbed by the United Brassfounders and Engineers in 1910 to resume its independent identity. The intention of the new company was to manufacture a complete line of valves, cocks and general steam and water fittings, such as had been made at the various works of the United Brassfounders and Engineers.[2]
