From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Clyde Engineering was an Australian manufacturer of
locomotives, rolling stock, and other industrial products.
It was founded in September 1898 by a syndicate of Sydney
businessmen buying the Granville factory of timber
merchants Hudson Brothers. The company won contracts for
railway rolling stock, a sewerage system, trams and
agricultural machinery. In 1907 it won its first contract for
steam locomotives for the New South Wales Government
Railways. By 1923 it had 2,200 employees. After contracting
during the depression it became a major supplier of
munitions during World War II.
[1]
In 1950 it was awarded the first of many contracts for diesel
locomotives by the Commonwealth Railways after it was
appointed the Australian licencee for Electro-Motive Diesel
products.
[2]
Apart from building locomotives and rolling
stock, Clyde Engineering diversified into telephone and
industrial electronic equipment, machine tools, domestic
aluminium ware, road making and earth making equipment,
hydraulic pumps, product finishing equipment, filtration
systems, boilers, power stations and firing equipment, car
batteries, hoists and cranes, door and curtain tracks and motor
vehicle distribution.
[1]
In J uly 1996 it was taken over by Evans Deakin Industries.
[3][4][5]
In March 2001 Evans Deakin was taken over by
Downer Group to form Downer EDi.
