BRITAIN’S oldest coachbuilder was based in Huddersfield for more than 100 years.
The famous Rippon Brothers built coaches for Queen Elizabeth I and Mary Queen of Scots.
Later the company landed an exclusive manufacturing deal with Rolls-Royce.
Rippon’s associations with Huddersfield date back to 1870 when William Rippon established the business in St John’s Road.
Before the business came to Huddersfield, Walter Rippon is credited with having introduced the coach to England in 1555 with his first customer being the Earl of Rutland.
In 1584, Rippon built a special ‘chariot throne’ for Elizabeth I and also made a coach for Mary Queen of Scots.
Decendant William Rippon set up the Huddersfield business and it was later taken on by his three sons William, Joseph and George.
The firm started to operate a thriving business making the transition from horse-drawn vehicles to horseless carriages.
But the company’s reputation for excellence was rooted in its association with Rolls-Royce, having built its first body for what was a new make in 1906.
Rippon made the bodies of nearly all the Rolls-Royce models until 1958.
In 1963 Rippon Brothers received an impressive endorsement of its work when Rolls-Royce presented it with an award to commemorate the delivery of the 1,000th Rolls-Royce and Bentley.
The company’s chairman and managing director from 1949 until his death in 1969 was Joseph’s son, Colonel Reginald Rippon.
