The Company can trace its origins back to 1947 and a local businessman by the name of Mr W Cox. He was previously a charge hand for Hunters Ltd one of the largest Electrical Contractors in Liverpool and worked on many prestige projects.
He started the business undertaking contracting and repair work caused by bomb damage and saw a market for making small motors which because of the war were in large demand, the business operated from a basement near the Pier Head.
He formed a partnership with Mr K Dixon who was the chief armature winder at Waygood Otis Ltd and the company relocated into premises in Caryl St, Liverpool 8 and continued electrical contracting and armature winding under the title of COX & DIXON.
In 1967 Mr Dixon retired and Mr B Tyrer who had completed an electrical contracting apprenticeship with the above went into partnership with Mr Cox. The company traded under the title of Cox, Dixon and Company and continued as before carrying out industrial and commercial electrical contracting and motor rewinds with the associated fault finding.
In 1972 Mr Cox retired and Mr Tyrer continued trading under the same name.In 1978 the company became Ltd and the name was established as COX & TYRER LTD
