The History of Chard Brothers (Bristol)
Chard Brothers a former coal pit-head site in Feeder Road 1928. THE Chard family of Knowle are as much known for adapting to circumstances as they are for the quality of their work and products. In the early 1900s the three sons of Mr Chard, John, Albert and Frank followed their father into the building trade. Chard Brothers has been painted in black on the grey company vehicles from the days when open topped electric trains ran in the streets of Bristol. It was their skilled combination of traditional craft building methods with the latest in modem machinery which led to the development over a period of thirty years of the Chard reputation. Initially this grew in the then growing Wells Road area of Knowle where there was an inter-war demand for well built, stylish houses. Today estate agents advertise these houses as being Chard built knowing that local buyers will rush to buy homes that are better made than many others. The Chard Brothers umbrella covered three diverse business enterprises each run independently. John, accompanied by sons Ben and Leo, stuck to the builder’s last with a building operation run from a number of sites as his firm grew. Frank, and his daughter Violet, went into the haulage business which they ran together until 1972. Albert, the skilled carpenter, set up a commercial vehicle body building shop. In those pre World War Two days customers could order timber framed car and lony bodies made to their specifications for fitting onto the standard metal chassis, or base frames, that held the engine and wheels. As this was, and remains, very much a family business it was natural for Albert to take on not only his sons, Norman and Clifford, but also his grandson Derek. The body building business has adapted to the times by concentrating as a body repair specialist operating in St Philips. John’s building enterprise bought, in 1926, a former coal pit- head site in Feeder Road sandwiched between the coal powered power station built to utilise the local coal and Coles’ ‘bone-yard’. As the latter dealt with slaughter house waste at a period when public health authorities worked to simpler rules than today the smell of burning intestines and boiling bones impregnated the clothes and hair of everyone in the vicinity. The Feeder Road branch of Chards had been set up to produce lime putty and ash mortars for specialist uses. John and his sons established a small engineering business on spare ground at the site which dealt with local industries. The additional work involved the installation of machine plant for local firms who also called upon Chards for repairs to existing equipment. Following the outbreak of war in 1939 this department expanded and took on female machinists to replace men called up into the forces. Post war re-development of civil construction was slow at first but a dozen hand filled mortar mills were in use by the 1950s. These were later replaced by automatic, self emptying mills to the relief of those who had done the grafting. This improvement was made in time to meet the enormous demand for ready mixed concrete delivered ready for use. By 1960 the company, strengthened by John’s grandsons Tony, David and Bill, had become a flourishing engineering business specialising in the amazing machines which produce compost for mushroom growers. The ‘White Queen’ composter, as popular abroad as it is at home, shreds and mixes wetted straw and manure into clean, warm, moist compost in a matter of days rather than the months taken by nature. Another speciality of the firm is the making and repair of propeller shafts which link engines to axles, not for ships and boats, but for road vehicles. Chard Brothers lost their original base when Redcatch Road was re-developed as Knowle shopping precinct in 1972. Twenty years later the company again became homeless when the Feeder Road yard became part of the fly-over link road and Chards moved into temporary premises in the old Albert Road council yard. In 1997 they moved back to Feeder Road and built new buildings in a clear yard under the fly-over where they continue to maintain their fine reputation for ‘Chard built and Bristol fashion’.Godwin Warren Engineering (Bristol)
Godwin Warren Engineering nowadays make automatic and electronic equipment, but when William Warren started up his business in the 1790s, it was as a wholesale ironmonger at Bridge Street. By 1870, when his son Robert was in charge and when James Godwin became a partner, the firm was making fasteners, fixings and steel. In 1910 they became a private limited company and by 1920 were the largest steel stockists in the region, with their own engineering department to satisfy cut bar demand. Jobbing engineering projects were taken on, and by 1952 they were making electric consoles and panels, steel pit props, and ASDIC equipment for the Royal Navy. Work for the railways followed, friction buffer stops and level crossing barriers; and, endlessly versatile, they started making starting-stalls for horse-racing courses, and car-parking systems. In 1970 they went into computerised parking. After various changes of ownership, they are now owned by Institutional Investors, and there is now an American subsidiary of the firm which started out on one floor of a house in Bridge Street.
Among those interested in drying are chemical engineers, energy specialists, and mechanical engineers. This book assists the process development engineer, the process engineer, and the plant engineer in selecting drying equipment. It discusses the criteria to be observed, the gathering of results of relevant laboratory measurements, the carrying out of small-scale tests (the results of which can be scaled up), and procedures for sizing equipment. Written by an author with over four decades in the process industries, this book brings an extensively practical approach for the engineer.See also:
