The company Braithwaite rebuild was established in 1993 when Bridgepot ceased the manufacture of machine tools in Bridlington. Bridgeport started production of the Bridgeport ( under license from Bridgeport America by Adcock and Shipley) in 1962 . A total of 50,000 machines were produced at the Bridlington factory.
