  • At the height of the company's success in the early 1960s, over one  hundred recorders a week rolled off the production lines. No mean feat when you consider the machines were completely hand built.

  • At its peak, the company employed some 340 staff. 220 of which were women mainly engaged in  soldering the various sub assemblies on the production lines.

  • Stirling Moss was reportedly a huge Ferrograph fan and made several visits to the factory.

  • Some fifty percent of the highly regarded Ferrograph echo sounding equipment was sold abroad.

  • Ferrograph recorders were for many years  used to gather intelligence from under the Berlin Wall.
