The company was founded by [[J. C. Bamford (person)|Joseph Cyril Bamford]] in October 1945 in [[Uttoxeter]], [[Staffordshire]], [[England]]. He rented a lock-up garage 12 feet by 15 feet. In it, using a welding set which he bought second-hand for £1 from [[English Electric]], he made his first vehicle, a tipping trailer from war-surplus materials. The trailer's sides and floor were made from steel sheet that had been part of [[air-raid shelter]]s. On the same day as his son Anthony was born, he sold the trailer at a nearby market for £45 (plus a part-exchanged farm [[cart]]) and at once made another trailer. At one time he made vehicles in Eckersley's coal yard in Uttoxeter. The first trailer and the welding set have been preserved: see image gallery.
