Armfield’s History

Armfield Ltd are feeling nostalgic today…..

Take a look at these historical adverts from 120 years ago, the company had several foundry’s producing farm machinery, public works projects such as lamp posts but specialised in water irrigation. In 1898 Armfield started selling the Empire Turbine, a reliable, easy to maintain and operate motor for obtaining power from water, Armfield’s tag line was “Expert Engineers sent anywhere to advise upon ANYTHING to do with WATER”.

By 1938 Armfield had iron work, farm machinery, pumps, hydroelectric generators, water wheels and irrigation gates all over the world.
