In 1914, the Electric & Ordnance Accessories Company Ltd constructed a large factory between Common Lane and Drews Lane in the Ward End area of Washwood Heath.

A distinctive feature was the Bromford House administrative block, with its 400 ft façade fronting onto Drews Lane.

During WW1 the factory also produced munitions fuses and shell cases. When the war was over, Vickers, the owners of Electric & Ordnance Accessories Company Ltd, put the factory under the ownership of Wolseley Motors and they replaced the small workshop sheds with a large assembly building.


In 1939, a new factory for the Morris Motors Pressing Branch was constructed on the Common Lane side of the Ward End Works. and in WW2, the factory produced tanks and military vehicles as well as mines and the Horsa glider.
After of hours of painstaking internet research, you know how it is, time spent endlessly Googling for for "EPIC", I stumbled upon the Morris Motors Pressing Branch. Perhaps not surprisingly the works appear to have stopped work sometime between 1939 and today.

Ladies and Gentlemen, 28DL, renowned automobile production line specialists and your trusted supplier of EPIC since 2005 present...
