I am a little surprised after all the messages on the site that the two men who established the company in Hebburn were not mentioned. I believe alphonse Reyrolle and Alistair Nicod arrived in Hebburn in the late 1800s t0 start the company which eventually employed 12000 people, unfortunately its history seems to have been forgotten. Hope this creates a little interest.
