Foreman cricket bats gained an international reputation but it was not long before the industrialisation of Chelmsford – mainly by the Marconi Wireless Telegraph Co. Ltd. demanded that the woodworking skills of Foremans were applied to making packing cases for the new wirelesses. The old offices were built in l912, just as Signor Guglielmo Marconi was building the world’s first radio factory at New Street in Chelmsford which now houses GEC-Marconi Communications Limited.
