Founded in 1914 by F. Burnett and E. Satchwell, the company sold a range of tin plate toys, including an open top motor bus and a Royal Mail van, plus fire engines, aircraft and locomotives.

Also produced the 'Ubilda' range of kits which included a few cars. However, the company did not undertake its own manufacturing (see Barringer, Wallis and Manners Co Ltd).

In 1939 it ran into financial difficulties, and its tooling was acquired by Chad Valley Toys.
