Site Background & Header

The background to the site is a modern picture of Westminster, the ‘home’ of William Sugg for so many years. It was taken from the roof of The House of Lords during a visit by the Heritage Group of CIBSE in 2004 and centres on Westminster Abbey. The header carries a woodcut of ‘Vincent Works’, the Sugg factory, which might well have been visible from this vantage point. William used this on one of his letter heads. The first and oldest logo also shows the intimate connection with Westminster as it carries the Westminster portcullis with the inscription ‘en avant’ – ‘in advance’. The second logo replaced the earlier one around 1920 and was used right the way through the century until the ‘modern’ era when the ‘flame’ logo was applied to the new era of gas heating equipment with the new factory in Crawley.

  1. Hi, I have a ww1 artillery piece that is stamped “w.sugg& co ltd” I was hoping you could give me some information on it. Regards.

    1. Hello Jack, William Sugg made many armament items as you can see if you go to History section 3 https://williamsugghistory.co.uk/?page_id=6#three I am afraid you have to wind down quite a way but there are pictures of the workshops producing armaments in The Great War and the damage to the factory in WWII with just after that a picture of the 1/4 millionth fuse and a part of one picked up on the battlefield of the Somme. I would love to add a photo of your item if you could send me one. Thanks for getting in touch. Incidentally, the text also reports how the end of armament production affected turnover!
