A brief History of Tangye

Vintage Tangye machinery

In the late sixties, the company underwent a significant transformation when it was acquired by the Central Wagon Group, historically recognized as ‘asset strippers.’ Following this acquisition, the Cornwall site was sold off, and operations were relocated to Birmingham, coinciding with the Shelly company, renowned for manufacturing mechanical car jacks.

As part of this strategic shift, all previously manufactured products were discontinued, and focus was directed solely towards retaining ship jack and aluminium jack manufacturing.

The Central Wagon Group also held another valuable asset, Eric Peel & Co (EPCO), a leading garage equipment manufacturer specializing in products like trolley jacks, garage presses, and cranes.

In a landmark move, Tangye and EPCO were merged, operating manufacturing facilities in both Birmingham and Leeds.

Following financial challenges, Central Wagon was compelled to sell to the Booker Group, seeking to diversify their business model beyond Grocery and Publishing.

Despite financial hurdles, manufacturing persisted at the Birmingham and Leeds branches, lasting for three years until a management buyout led by the Managing and Engineering Directors.

However, this arrangement was short-lived, prompting involvement from the West Midlands Enterprise Board, which appointed its own Managing Director.

Transitioning from Birmingham to Accrington, the company was acquired by the Turner & Newall Group (Hydratight), known for manufacturing Hydraulic Rope Pullers and Torque Multiplier equipment. During a stable period, Allspeeds Group (part of the GEI group) showed interest, leading to their acquisition of Tangye in 1994, and the subsequent relocation of operations to Accrington.

Within the Allspeeds complex, Tangye exclusively manufactures the aluminium jack range, alongside other branded products, solidifying its position as a prominent name in the industry.
