Description:
C. A. Parsons and Company was a British engineering firm which was once one of the largest employers on Tyneside.

History

The Company was founded by Charles Algernon Parsons in 1889 to produce turbo-generators, his own invention.

Nuclear power stations using Parsons turbo-generators include Bradwell, Calder Hall, Dungeness, Heysham 2 and Oldbury in England and Chapelcross and Hunterston in Scotland.

The company merged with A. Reyrolle & Company to form Reyrolle Parsons in 1968. In 1977 Reyrolle Parsons merged with Clarke Chapman to form Northern Engineering Industries plc, which itself was acquired by Rolls-Royce plc in 1989.

The company survives today as part of the power generation division of the industrial conglomerate, Siemens, who acquired the business from Rolls-Royce in 1997. Siemens continues manufacture of generator spindles at the much-reduced 'Parsons Works' in Newcastle upon Tyne, but the Parsons name itself is no longer actively used as a trade name.
