Richard Garrett & Sons
Richard Garrett & Sons was a manufacturer of steam engines, trolleybuses and agricultural equipment and machinery. It was founded in 1778 though production of steam powered engines started in the 1840s.
The company joined the Agricultural & General Engineers (AGE) combine in 1919, and the combine entered receivership in 1932.
Like Aveling & Porter, Garrett joined the AGE in 1919 but at the collapse of this combine Garrett was bought by Beyer Peacock in 1932. It continued to operate under its own name (well more or less: Richard Garrett Engineering Works) until it was closed down in 1981.
