Soul Brothers Ltd was established in 1923 and today, it is still owned by the same family.
How it all started…
In 1907 Mr Fred Soul founded a tin & white smith, hot and cold water and gas fitting business.
Diversifying in 1923, a 14 seat Metallurgique was purchased, Souls first coach.
Fred’s son, Bob Soul, took over the running of the company between the two World Wars. The family connection continued in 1975 when the present Managing Director, David Soul, Bob’s son, entered the business after a three year university course in Mechanical Engineering, followed by three years in industry based in Canada. The family business is now in its fourth generation as David’s son, another David is involved in the business.
