Company History Fyfe Wilson was started in Glasgow by Mr Fyfe and Mr Wilson soon after the first world war as manufacturers of generating sets. In 1919, an office of Fyfe Wilson was opened in London by Mr HFK Dearlove. In 1921 Mr Dearlove aquired the company and it was incorporated as a limited liability company and located at Station Works in Bishop’s Stortford. This allowed the company to expand into electric motors and engine drives that were being installed to modernise factories. Over the following years, work continued on generators following the spread of the national grid and the conversion to the new 440/240 volt AC system. During the Great Depression, the company diversified further to maintain operations. At the start of the second world war, the company was engaged by the Admiralty to carry out secret development work on heavy marine diesel engines and specialised generators for minesweepers. After the war, the company returned to commercial work and started site installation work and the manufacture of electromagnets. In 2001 the company purchased an industrial unit in Raynham Road and relocated here. In 2019, the company relocated to the current premises in Harlow.
