In 1885, a merger with a local rival manufacturer,William Alldays, saw the foundation of a new company, Alldays & Onions Ltd and advances in technology allowed the company to expand into new areas of production including water turbines, centrifugal fans, positive pressure blowers, pneumatic hammers, cupolas, furnaces, smithy equipment and a huge range of cycles and tricycles.
During the 1900s the company expanded into a new market, producing its first automobile – the Volturette. During the First World War, Alldays & Onions were renowned for their production of motorcycles and when the war ended the company produced a new car – the Enfield-Alldays series LC.
After World War II, with changing market requirements, Alldays & Onions Ltd establish itself as a market leader in the manufacture of centrifugal fans expanding into the field of dust collecting and chemical engineering. In 1969 the company merged with rival fan company J.C.Peacock forming Alldays Peacock & Co Ltd and in the 1980s the company expanded its factory in Weston-Super-Mare in Somerset and began selling abroad.
In 2005 Alldays Peacock was purchased by the world’s leading fan-maker, the Witt UK Group.
