Bradbury Wilkinson and Company

Bradbury Wilkinson & Co were an English engraver and printer of banknotes, postage stamps and share certificates. The original company was begun in 1856 by Henry Bradbury (1831-60). In 1861 the company was established at New Malden in Surrey where it remained until the 1986 when it was acquired by De La Rue. The site is now occupied by the Shannon Corner Tesco supermarket.

In 1983, Bradbury Wilkinson created a form of polymer banknote using Du Pont's Tyvek material; this was marketed as Bradvek and used to print 1-pound banknotes for the Isle of Man.
