History of W H Allen

W.H. Allen, Sons and Co., often referred to as WH Allen or simply Allen, was a British engineering company that specialized in the design and manufacture of engines, pumps, and other machinery. Founded in 1880 by William Henry Allen in London, the company initially produced various types of machinery, including turbines, pumps, and electrical equipment. Over time, the focus shifted to the production of diesel engines and gas turbines.

WH Allen engines were known for their reliability and performance, and they were used in a variety of applications such as:

  1. Marine propulsion: WH Allen engines were used in naval vessels, including patrol boats, frigates, and minehunters, as well as in commercial ships and ferries.
  2. Power generation: The company’s engines and turbines were used in generator sets to produce electricity for industrial, commercial, and residential applications.
  3. Industrial applications: WH Allen engines powered heavy machinery and equipment in industries such as mining, construction, and manufacturing.

In 1960, WH Allen merged with Belliss and Morcom, another British engineering company, to form Allen Gears and Allen Diesel Engines. The company went through a series of mergers and acquisitions, ultimately becoming part of the Rolls-Royce group in 1989. The WH Allen brand was gradually phased out as its operations were integrated into the larger Rolls-Royce organization.
