The cooker assembly line at the GEC factory, Swinton, South Yorkshire, 1963. Artist

The cooker assembly line at the GEC factory, Swinton, South Yorkshire, 1963. The final stages of cooker asembly at the GEC plant in Swinton (near Rotherham). The GEC, which was formed in 1900 first aquired a factory in Swinton during the second world war, when it produced munitions. After the war, cooker production was based in Birmingham but the company struggled to find good workers, possibly due to the motor industry (which shared the same skills) offering more money. The directors decided to open the factory in Swinton and the first cooker came off the production line in June of 1946. The company later became known as Morphy Richards
