U.K. based Christie & Grey, Ltd., a leader in vibration mitigation technology is celebrating a century of developing high performance, cost-effective vibration and shock isolation solutions for a wide variety of industries.
The present company evolved from the British Anti-Vibration & Noise Co Ltd and Typhoon Mixer Co, two firms formed by British engineer Robert Bertram Grey in 1912.
At that time most of the business was focused on Typhoon Mixer Co, which designed equipment principally used in the mixing and agitation of industrial chemicals. The British Anti-Vibration & Noise Company (BAV&N Co) was involved in the development of a natural cork isolation mat (a product trade named Coresil) used to isolate electrical power generators from their foundations. Both companies grew profitable and were eventually consolidated in W. Christie & Grey Ltd. in the early 1920s. The company became focused on marine applications in 1934.
