The English Rose was born out of post-war surplus. During World War Two, Constant Speed Airscrews Ltd.
(CSA Industries) Warwickshire-based engineering firm, made successful trade manufacturing Spitfire aircraft nose cones and parts for Lancaster bombers. Come peacetime however, this left the company with vast amounts of machinery, a large workforce, stockpiles of aircraft grade aluminium and nothing to use them for. In 1948 the company took what transpired to be a genius decision to diversify into making upmarket fitted kitchens in a style influenced by bold American design a clever way to use their workforce, expertise, machinery and materials. The English Rose range, as it was named, was one of the first modular fitted kitchens in Britain and came with a range of units made from sturdy aluminium that bolted neatly together to provide maximum use of interior space.
