About us Home
Our company was started during World War II by Mr. J. F. Theobald who was himself involved with sewing machines since the 1920s.
The photo shows Mr J. F Theobald and Mrs I.M. Theobald with their son Robert, present Managing Director and Mrs Goss (an employee at the time). The van was a brand new Bedford, very hard to obtain at that time (because the factory had been turned to war work).
This photo was taken circa 1960. It shows Mr J.F. Theobald and representatives, from left to right: Tony Burch, Leonard Attersall, Raymond Jupp, John Pateman and Allan Milner.
