We've been innovating at William Rowland since 1830
We celebrated 150 years of William Rowland in 1980. To mark this momentous occasion we created a William Rowland Commemorative Plate that featured our old horse ‘Farmer’. In the 1830’s, Farmer was a familiar sight around Sheffield as he helped deliver ingots of zinc, iron and tin to our customers.
In 1987, another significant venture began when DCX Chrome (formally known as Delachaux), a global manufacturer of high-quality chromium metal, appointed us as their sole sales agent in the UK and Eire. This exciting appointment was a show of confidence by DCX Chrome in recognition of our expertise and reputation in the aerospace industry.
