The Worshipful Company of Coachmakers and Coach Harness Makers of London
It has been said that the Guilds of the City of London are like sturdy oaks, deeply rooted in the past, yet maintaining their strength and renewing their freshness from year to year and branching out generously to new opportunities.
The City Guilds were the nurseries of English Crafts and Commerce and now justify their continued existence by a host of activities in the promotion of Charity, Education, Craftsmanship and Good Fellowship.
The Coachmakers’ Company has moved from an organisation responsible for quality control to a charitable association which, in contemporary times, meets its obligations to the City of London through support for the heritage craft of coach and coach harness making and, also, in the promotion of excellence in the development of the trade within the modern aerospace, automotive and rail industries.
These goals are achieved through the promotion of associations, the award of educational bursaries, the recognition of excellence and in charitable fund raising for organisations associated with the relevant industries.
