My blog - CL and Titian and Orzel relationship

Post  Maryr on Sat 3 Jun - 17:26

I have revitalised my poor neglected blog in an effort to explain the relationship between CL and Titian and Orzel. I am having technical probs getting a link onto the FB page, but meanwhile I will put it on this site.

This is a complex issue - if there is anything I haven't got right in my blog post, please let me know.
Yours

Val just one thing. 
So did Crown Lynn start manufacturing at the Titian factory in 1969? 
Then the Brown's left in 1972 and started Orzel?

Thanks for that Ev, I have checked your questions. The takeover was 1968 (not 1969) according to the CL newsletters. And I have re-written the bit about the Brown's move from CL and the set-up of Orzel. I think it makes sense now but please let me know if not. Cam Jnr was not very sure of his dates, but hopefully there is enough documentation elsewhere to get it right.

The thing is that I have this niggling feeling that the Browns only stayed for about a year after the takeover and it doesn't add up??? The new date makes it even longer, so I will do some digging to see if I can find anything helpful.

I think the move was gradual - Young Cam and Beverley worked part-time in their parents' garage until they had enough capital to buy a site at Drury. Hemara came to work for them in the garage 'almost straight away' said Cam in the interview I recorded. Cam was a bit vague though about dates - so I hope your digging bears fruit (or should that be finds potatoes?)
Gail Henry says that Orzel Industries was "formally established" at Firth St in Drury in 1972, so it was possible the factory was in operation before that date and the company was formally registered in 1972? However Cam and Beverley also told us it was 1972. I will flick you some interview transcripts from the time you and I had a talk to Cam and Bev.
Good luck with your digging.
