Alfred Sargent, together with his sons, Frank and Harry, set up the company in 1899, and in 1915 moved to the present site of Portland Road.  It was the first single storey factory built in Rushden and also the first to have electricity, a vast improvement from the old gas lighting of the era.

Alfred Sargent is now managed by Paul Sargent, the fourth generation of Sargents, and the company has now achieved over 110 years of production in Rushden and will in 2015 celebrate its anniversary on the Portland Road site.
