English Electric Company

The English Electric Company, Limited (EE) was formed in 1918 and in that and the next year, took over Dick, Kerr & Co., Willans & Robinson of Rugby and the Phoenix Dynamo Manufacturing Company of Bradford. It also bought the Stafford works of Siemens Bros, Dynamo Works Ltd. In 1930, the manufacture of electrical equipment was moved to Bradford; tram, bus body and rolling stock production staying at Preston. From 1912–1918, United Electric and English Electric supplied 2nd and 3rd generation tramcars for Hong Kong Tramways. In 1923 EE supplied electric locomotives for the New Zealand Railways for use between Arthurs Pass and Otira, in the Southern Alps. In 1927 EE delivered 20 electric motor cars for the Warsaw’s Warszawska Kolej Dojazdowa. During the 1930s, EE supplied equipment for the electrification of the Southern Railway system. Between the late 1930s and the 1950s EE supplied electric multiple units for the electrified network in and around Wellington, New Zealand. EE took over Vulcan Foundry and Robert Stephenson and Hawthorns, both with substantial railway engineering pedigrees, in 1955.
