Whitlock Brothers A history family, farm, forage works, foundry and factory

Adrian Corder-Birch, D.L
Whitlock Brothers - A history of the
family, farms, forage works, foundary
and factory at Great Yeldham.
They initially farmed on an extensive
scale and later owned a brickworks,
chaff works and an agricultural
engineering works. This was
established in 1899 as Whitlock
Brothers and gradually expanded to
include a foundry and carpentry shops.
All types of agricultural machinery,
wagons, carts and trailers, together
with a variety of wooden buildings were
supplied.

In 1941 Whitlcok Bros. Ltd was
incorporated and the company gradually
diversified in to earthmoving
machinery. The Whitlock Dinkum Digger
was the first ever tractor-mounted
hydraulic excavator-loader, now
commonly known as JCBs, some two years
before JCB or any other competitor.
This was followed by the first
hydraulic dredger, known as the
Whitlock Dinkum Dredger for clearing
rivers and cannals and what was then
the largest hydraulic drill rig in the
world. In 1960 the first Dinkum
Dumpers were built, followed in 1963 by
Britain's first Hydrostatic Dumpers.
The name of 'Whitlock' was synonymous
with earth moving equipment and became
known around the world. Sadly
following a takeover, the Great Yeldham
factor closed. A subsidiary company in
Australia was established, with a
network of distributors in many
countries.
