The foundry has an extensive Website which gives details of current operations and a small amount of historical information.  It also presents explanations and illustrations of a variety of different ways of hanging and ringing bells, and offers some sound clips.  There is a page devoted to the Bellfoundry Museum, including the schedule of open hours.

American representatives:

From time to time, the Taylor foundry has sold bells into the American market through various local firms.  It is unclear whether any of those firms held an exclusive right to market Taylor bells in America.

Between 1982 and 1992, there were about a dozen orders, from single bells up to a set of 24, shipped to the Maas-Rowe Company of Escondido, California.  It is presumed that Maas-Rowe provided the design and controls as well as installation.

From time to time, there have been vague reports of other firms or individuals acting as agents for Taylor in America, but reliable evidence of such relationships has not yet been found.

History:

Bill Hibbert has made available the Taylor foundry history up to 1960.

A 1995 article on the Taylor foundry and museum

Effective 1 July 2005, John Taylor Bellfounders merged with Eayre & Smith, Bellhangers.  The merged firm operated under the name Taylors Eayre & Smith, using the foundry property in Loughborough.

Effective 19 October 2009, the bellfoundry is again operating under the historic name of John Taylor & Co., with new ownership and management.

A photo slide show has 8 pictures (mostly historic) of the history of the Taylor foundry.

In its earliest 4-octave carillons, the Taylor bellfoundry used a novel technology to get more sound from the treble end of the range.  For details, see our page on Taylor's doubled trebles.
