Pemberton & Co.
Pemberton & Co, also known as Pemberton & Sons, manufactured machinery for the textile industry, advertising 'Looms of all descriptions for cotton linen, silk, etc., textile preparation machinery.'
In 1922 the firm's directors were William Pemberton, William Pemberton, Junior and Thomas H. Pemberton. Two years later, in 1924, company representatives attended the British Empire Exhibition promoting "High-class Looms of all descriptions". By then the firm had works at Waterloo and Britannia Foundry.
Company employees were amongst those who joined the Burnley, Nelson, Rossendale and District Textile Workers' Union (BNRDTWU) when it was founded in 1966.
