    UKMISC: Rail Cranes: Stothert and Pitt

    Stothert & Pitt

    Stothert & Pitt was a British engineering company founded in 1855 in Bath, England. It was the builder of various engineering products ranging from Dock cranes to construction plant and household cast iron items. It went out of business in 1989. The name and intellectual property became part of Clarke Chapman.

    The firm was sold to Robert Maxwell's Hollis Group in 1986. Following the collapse of Maxwell's empire a management buy out was undertaken in 1988. But this failed and the company closed in 1989, resulting in all the works shutting down. The Stothert & Pitt name was sold to Langley Holdings, which now belongs to the NEI group owners of Clarke Chapman, and is operated for Dock crane consultancy. Despite ceasing all manufacturing operations, the company exists for consultancy, reference and repairs from their new headquarters at the Bradman Lake offices in Bristol.

    Stothert & Pitt moved from Bath to Bristol in summer 2008 and now occupy three office annexes in the Bradman Lake British headquarters on Yelverton Road in Brislington.
