    A history of innovation


    Fairgrieve Mouldings Limited is formed in central Sunderland by two brothers, becoming the only compression moulding company in the North East of England.


    We became the first UK company to mould Bakelite, the first thermoset or phenolic plastic invented by Dr Leo Henrik Baekeland, revolutionising industry and life across Britain.


    To help with the War effort, the highly significant Tool No 623 was made from steel at a cost of £9 10s 0d to a drawing supplied by C A Parsons & Co Ltd.


    Our former home at 200-201 High Street East in Sunderland is purchased by the North East Civic Trust because of its historical significance in the UK development of Bakelite.


    Washington becomes our new home after moving in to a 15,000 sq ft manufacturing and office facility, driving the factory and business into the modern 21st Century.
