Ltd, June 1954 watched by A.D.MacKay (M.D.)(standing) and George Bergius (son of the founder, seated). 'AC' joined the Company in 1906; his father owned a coach building business and built the bodies for the 'Kelvin' cars and later all the spray hoods for 'Kelvin' launches. He served his apprenticeship with the Company and went on to become Works Manager and finally Works Director. He designed all the jigs and tools necessary for 'batch production' and many specialized machine tools. Walter Bergius considered 'AC' to be the best jig and tool designer in the country.
