Company History - The 20th Century

Peter Harris died in 1874 followed by George Pearson in 1899; the firm continued to be run by their respective sons. During the depression period of the 1920/30's the company acquired several, similar, small businesses and consequently became incorporated in 1931 to become Harris & Pearson Ltd.

In 1968 Dyson Group Plc. purchased the company, although it continued to trade independently until about 1980. Pickford Holland, who were part of the Dyson Group or J & J Dyson as they were then known, last used the Offices until 1990.
