Broadcrown Group company timeline

The Foundation of Broadcrown

In 1974, Frank Borgman, Jim Watson and Mike Kowalewski founded an engineering firm called BKW Engineering Co in small premises in Crown St, Stone, Staffs. The business was engaged in the manufacture of farm trailers and general fabrication. In 1975 Mike Kowalewski left the business and David Borgman joined to focus on the installation of diesel generators for the major UK manufacturers at that time.

In 1976 Victor Yates joined the business, Broadcrown Ltd was formed and it was decided that it would manufacture, install and commission its own built diesel generators for the UK market.

Vic had the responsibility for sales, Frank for the accounts, David for the engineering and production and Jim for the site works.
In 1977 the Company moved to an early renaissance industrial unit in Mill St Stone where it was able to set up full production facilities and expand.

After ten years, Jim Watson left the business in 1985 and Frank retired in 1987- the same year Broadcrown acquired Dorman Diesels from GEC.
Leaving Broadcrown operations in the hands of various directors, Vic and David moved to Dorman to run and develop the engine business. In 1994 Dorman Diesels was sold to Perkins Engine Co Ltd.
Both Vic and David took a well-deserved vacation.

In 1997 Broadcrown moved to a purpose built factory at Hixon following the sale of the old premises for the town by-pass and a supermarket.

In 2000 David moved back into the business.

Today David Borgman is Managing Director and Victor Yates is Chairman of the Broadcrown Group.
