The original company was begun in 1856 by Henry Bradbury (1831-60). In 1873-74 they built an imposing six-storey workshop, for engraving printing plates, in Holborn, London at 25 and 27 Farringdon Road, which is now a Grade II-listed building. In 1917 the company was established at New Malden in Surrey where it remained until 1986 when it was acquired by De La Rue. The site is now occupied by the Shannon Corner Tesco supermarket.
