In 1889, the same year as the construction of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, our first patent was signed by Queen Victoria to protect the innovation and designs of our original grinding machinery.
In 1931, we introduced our first ever CR spin grinder, which would set the tone for future creations.
Dating back to the origins of the first video recorder, our very first Anglemaster grinding machine was introduced in 1963.
In 1966, the same year as England claimed their first football World Cup victory, our first Dual spin grinder machine was introduced to the market. Based on John Atterton’s original design principles, ‘The Dual’ was a quick, easy, and efficient sharpening machine.
In early 1971, we introduced the first in our line of Express Dual grinding machines, together with a new clamping device which made mower set up faster than ever previously. The Express Dual remains a key product line to this day, with six unique models currently in production.
In 1998, the Government’s Department of Trade and Industry recognised our commitment to business practices with a DTI Award.
In 1999, Bernhard and Company officially completed the purchase and merger of Atterton and Ellis. With extensive knowledge of turf and its horticultural benefits, Stephen Bernhard completed the takeover with the hope to carry forward the legacy of these special grinding machines.
In 2008, Bernhard and Company received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise.
In 2009, we officially opened our brand-new Head Office in Rugby.
In 2012, after months of planning and building work, we finally moved into a brand-new factory. With new demonstrations areas we are now able to offer more training workshops and seminars than ever previously, in addition to our manufacturing and office space.
