Gloster Engineering

Gloster Engineering (Cheltenham) was located in St Pauls Street North, Cheltenham.

In 1967 it was acquired by the Dowty Group, then in 1969 a new factory was constructed and employed approximately 50 employees.

At this site, they developed and manufactured thermo-plastic and thermo-setting components by injection moulding, vacuum forming and press moulding used in Dowty products.
