Kemp, A. J. (2015). The 100 Years History of Coles Cranes : A Series of Illustrated Books about Coles Cranes, Book 1 of 2. Retrieved from

This first of 2 books is a reproduction of a promotional book given to clients and agents produced by Coles in 1979 called, “Coles 100 years - The growth story of Europe’s Leading Crane Manufacturer -1879 - 1979 ”. It was to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the Coles Crane company by Henry James Cole in 1879. This book laid out the history of Coles from the foundation to the then present day 1979.

This is about the history of Coles Cranes, a company which in the mid 1950s and 1980s became one of the largest mobile crane manufacturers on the world. By 1998 the last few workers walked off the factory site and Coles Cranes was no more. This is the story of the growth of that business and the final decline.

No records can be found relating to Henry Coles’ childhood until he left school at the age of 13, to be articled to S.Worssam and Co. (later called A. Ransome and Co.), who were manufacturers of sawmill equipment with premises on the King’s Road, Chelsea. He was with them for ten years, the first five in the drawing office, the remainder in tile company’s workshops. In 1870 he joined Maudslay, Sons and Field. He spent two years there as a marine engineer, erecting equipment on a Number of fighting ships including HMS Triumph and Swiftsure. Then, in 1872, he joined Appleby Bros, and in doing so made tile move which changed his life.
