Our Story

Forest City Company profile

Forest City Generators was founded in 1902 by Samuel Quilliam. The factory was first located in Manchester's famed Trafford Park, Europe's first purpose-built industrial estate. The first products were associated with overhead cables and rail switching systems for electric tramcars. However, the origin of the present production line was laid in the 1920s when Forest City Generators became the first British manufacturer of traffic signals.
