Biographical history

Anderson-Grice Co. Ltd was founded by George Anderson, the owner of the Arbroath Foundry in Dickfield Street, Arbroath. Anderson's main products related to quarrying which was a major industry in Angus at this time. In around 1886, Anderson began to relocate his business Carnoustie. The new premises were the former Taymouth Linen Works, a larger site and one which was located next to the Dundee and Arbroath Joint Railway. The move was completed by 1898. In 1902 Arthur Grice became a partner in the company. The main products of the company were varieties of cutting machinery, but they also produced a variety of other mechanical devices including cranes and the Dalhousie motor car (1906 to 1910)
