Pitts Wilson Limited was formed by the amalgamation of two long standing Bradford based Electrical Contracting Businesses – Pitts Electrical Limited and W D Wilson Limited.
The two Companies operated as separate businesses until 1997 when W D Wilson was acquired by and became part of Pitts Electrical Limited at that time the Company name changed to Pitts Wilson Electrical Limited, later dropping the ‘Electrical’ reference with a view to adding a Mechanical capability which is now fully in place.
W D Wilson can trace its trading history back to 1910, when it was established to take advantage of the change towards electrically driven machinery in local Mills. The Company was incorporated on the 11th July 1947.
Mr John Fyfe Wilson, the son of the founder, was a Fellow of the IEE and was awarded an MBE in the New Year’s Honours List published on the 30th December 1989.
