Samuel Moore ( -1947) of Aiton and Co

1947 Obituary [1]

Mr. Samuel Moore died on 7 February 1947, after only a short period of retirement from active service with the firm he had joined in November 1915, Messrs. Aiton and Company, Ltd., Derby.

He originally hailed from the Black Country, and was for many years at Aiton's as welding shop foreman, playing a large part in the development of welding technique. In this he was a recognized authority, not only locally, but also on various national committees on which he served.

In July 1937 he relinquished his position as foreman and inaugurated the firm's research laboratory, now an indispensable part of the Company's organization.

He became a member of the Institute of Metals in 1944.
