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.

The workforce are all Bridgeport trained machine tool craftsmen. Terry Braithwaite, the proprietor, started a craft apprenticeship with  Adcock and Shipley in 1968. The Bridgeport has changed very little over the years and there is still a big demand for the versatile machine.
