Maker's nameplate on Goliath

  • Description

    "See [[1552310]]. Goliath was made by Alfred Herbert Limited, who were machine tool makers in Coventry. The Alfred Herbert Company was once the world's largest machine tool manufacturer, with a name comparable with Rolls-Royce. The firm closed following an auction of the entire stock in October 1983, when the workforce numbered 400, approximately the same as when Alfred Herbert declared it a private limited company in 1894.
