In the 1850s, Joseph Lucas, a jobless father of six, sold paraffin oil from a barrow cart around the streets. In 1860 he founded the firm that would become Lucas Industries.
At first it made general pressed metal merchandise, including plant pot holders, scoops and buckets and later in 1875, lamps for ships.
Joseph Lucas & Son was based in Birmingham.
During WW1 Lucas made shells and fuses for military vehicles.
Up until the early 1970s, Lucas was the principal supplier to British manufacturers such as BSA, Norton and Triumph.
