Alldays & Onions Ltd was formed in 1885 by a merger between William Allday & Co. and the bellow-maker John Onions. The new company, based in Birmingham (UK), produced a range of products including turbines, fans, pneumatic hammers and furnaces, as well as a vast range of bicycles. In the early 1900s they manufactured their first car, the "Voiturette", and subsequently went on to produce further cars and motorcycles. Their tractor production was limited to a single model, the Alldays General Purpose Tractor, although this was quite advanced for its time with front and rear springs and a fully enclosed engine.
