Arthur Lloyd & Sons Ltd

Arthur Lloyd & Sons Ltd were an engineering company based in Hazel Grove near Stockport.


At their large premises, located on Marsland Street, they manufactured steel structures of all shapes and sizes many of which were then required to be transported by specialised heavy haulage companies such as Edward Beck & Son.
