A Weston-super-Mare firm has celebrated 40 years of business with a party and presentations to some long-serving employees.

Brinsea Products Ltd was formed in 1976, and marked its four decades of egg incubation with a celebration attended by its suppliers, breeders and Poultry Club members from around the country.

The One Show wildlife reporter Mike Dilger was the guest of honour.

Brinsea was formed after engineer Frank Pearce bought three goose eggs and tried to incubate them in a tea chest heated by a light bulb and wondered why the eggs didn’t hatch. His research and subsequent incubators were the catalyst for what was then known as Brinsea Engineering.

Over the last 40 years Brinsea Products has grown to be the world leader in egg incubation technology.
