Founded in 1894 by Henry Earl Cartwright Peacock and John Binnington, 2019 is Peacock & Binnington’s 125th anniversary year. Peacock & Binnington became a limited company in 1937, but Henry Peacock, the first Managing Director, died before it’s first AGM. He was replaced by his son Allen Peacock, who remained at the company until his death in 1985. Allens son Michael joined the company in 1957 and was largely responsible for the expansion of the company. In 2016 Michael’s eldest son Nicholas, (a director of the company since 1992) was appointed as Vice-Chairman and became the fourth generation member of the family to be involved in running the business. Michael Peacock continues as Chairman and is still actively involved in the company created by his grandfather over a century ago.
