Early 1840s David Rose took on the running of both of the works Albert Iron Works (Wednesbury) and Moxley Iron Works when his older brother, Daniel, retired.

The works produced iron forgings and charcoal sheet iron of all kinds that were used for such things as boiler plates and gasometer sheets. Galvanising and corrugating were carried out on a large scale at the works and all kinds of bars including small rounds and fancy iron were produced. Other products included pan and tank plates, galvanised and corrugated sheets, and pig iron.

1881 David Rose was the name of the operating company of the Albert Iron Works (Wednesbury) and Moxley Iron Works
