An Aberdeen foundry which I have not previously encountered.

Albert Bridge has provided the following information on this company: "Barry, Henry and Cook Ltd. was founded in 1790 by John Barry, blacksmith, and later, burgess, of Aberdeen. For its first hundred years the company operated mainly as iron-founders, undertaking some ancillary engineering work and fertiliser manufacture, but during the period 1890 - 1923 engineering sales began to outstrip the foundry output, as emphasis on power transmission equipment and the beginning of materials handling became dominant. From 1923 - 1973, engineering was its main activity, and the company developed expertise in bulk material handling contracts, conveying systems and storage plants. Its iron-foundry was partly mechanised in this period, and after 1973 underwent radical advances in line with recent national research and development. From 1973 engineering material handling and oil-related work predominated.
In 1973 a new Aberdeen-based company Seaforth Maritime (est. 1972) took over a majority interest in Barry, Henry and Cook, Ltd.. It was subsequently subsumed into the engineering division of its parent company."
