Denner Grinding Company was first established in 1962 by Dennis Warner. The name was created by taking the first 3 letters of Dennis and the last 3 letters of Warner.
Dennis started the grinding company with his business partner Ross Knight. Ross stayed with the compay until the late 1970’s. Most of the work was for the fastener industry, G.K.N. in Heath Street, Smethwick.
Philip Attwater joined Dennis and Dennis's son John, after the retirement of Ross Knight in 1975. With the retirement of Dennis in 1982, the company was later taken over by grinders John Warner and Phillip Attwater.
With the changes in the engineering industry, it was decided to concentrate more on the aerospace side of engineering, which was growing successfully throughout the 1980’s. A move from the Jewellery Quarter to Avenue Road in 1988 and then in 2011 to its present site in Mount Street.
When John decided he no longer wanted to continue in his fathers company, Phil took over and kept Denner trading for 2 more years until Gary Green joined in 1998.
Kelford Grinding firm was aquired in 2001, and the name was changed to Denner-Kelford Grinding.
In 2004 Mark Philips joined the company and became a director in 2006. He added enthusiasm and new skills to the company.
Denner continued to grow as the industry flourished and had a good reputation in Birmingham and surrounding area for the quality of workmanship, completing work on time and sensible pricing.
