Thorlux was founded by Frederick William Thorpe in 1936 in Small Heath, Birmingham. The company produced vitreous enamelled shades for lighting factories, workshops, mills and farm buildings during the progressive industrialisation of the 1930s through to the 1950s. During the 1940s the Thorlux factory then in Redditch, Worcestershire spun the nose cones for Spitfire aircraft to assist with the war effort during WW2.
