 :)i would be greatful with all the help i can get with this site,here,s what i know just in case you don,t JAMES INGLIS @ CO started his bakery business in 1871,then building a new factory of 35,000 sq,ft, in 1882 on eliza street belfast market district which was again extened in 1889 to cope with demand. in 1910 JAMES INGLIS opposed an extension of the city,s gaswork,s along with some other business owners from the market district and the idea was scrapped.in the 1930,s he aquired several smaller bakeries such as,BLOOMFEILD BAKERY,THE ROYAL BAKERY,McWATTERS BAKERY, PATERSON,S BAKERY,CITY BAKERY,McCOMBS BAKERY,later to become MILANDA BAKERYand T.P.WILLIS BAKERY of NEWRY.INGLIS BISCUIT FACTORY, opened on the newtownards road i think in the early 60,s anyone know? the bakery was taken over by the J.ARTHUR.RANK GROUP not sure what year which also owned the RANK FILM GROUP,RANK HOVIS McDOUGAL flour mill,s CEROBOS SALT, E.T.GREEN,S flour mills and the MOTHER,S PRIDE BREAD GROUP IN ENGLAND.it was reported in the 60,s that INGLIS BAKERY had the largest fleet of breadvan,s in the united kindom.the bakery according to record,s closed in 1978 and moved to the then state of the art bakery MILANDA, on the boucher road i hope this has been some help if you can add anything please do so thank,s

The Inglis Factory was in Bread Street off the Newtownards Road my sister worked there in there in 1951...I dont know when it was built, but it was before 1950.... :)

Hi Gerard. I was the last production manager in Inglis. I left end of Sept 1977 to take up a position in a large Dublin Bakery. Some of the Staff moved to Milanda . I was supposed to be the new production manager there but the old political situation at that time made me decide to move on. I still  go north to meet up with a few of my old friends from then, every December. They were the men when I was the boy. Some of them have passed on this last few years, but we still recall old stories and some great characters.
                                        All the best, Dub.
