FORMED in 1925 by by William Edwin Sykes and first established in a small works in Staines, Middlesex, the business of the company had grown so much within eight years that more extensive premises were required. Accordingly, a factory was built at Staines which helped to meet the large demand for gear cutting machines and tools for military equipment that came with the Second World War. Prior to the War and as soon as possible afterwards, W E Sykes developed a considerable export trade as well as an increasing home market and by 1951, a large expansion was required. The original small premises became the Sykes Machine Tool Co, a leading importer of tools and equipment from Europe and the USA. The export trade of the main company was facilitated by the formation of subsidiaries in Canada and Australia and by the appointment of numerous established firms as agents.
