   Mirrless Blackstone is an engine and spare parts manufacturing company which
   flowed through different business associations and advancements in the agriculture
   and automotive oil engines. The company started building diesel engines, which was
   lift from the oil engines. The new internal combustion engine was designed to run on
   vaporizing oil and the engine was ignited by the spark. The engine did not required
   hot bulb to create the hot spark, a kind of differentiation from several automobile
   engines produced during the times. By the year 1919 the engine was mounted with
   state of the art 25 hp 3 cylinder, which was later fitted in the crawler tractor. In the
   year 1929, the company was in the position to produce high end diesel engines for
   premier Agricultural & General Engineers (AGE) group.


   In the year 1930, 'Ricardo' sleeve valve engine was on hype and Mirrlees planned
   two engines exemplifying this patent form of valve gear. The first type had a bore of
   5.5 inches and produced a stroke of 6.5 inches, and developed the 20 BHP per
   cylinder at 900 r.p.m. The other one had bore of 17 inches and stroke of 21.5 inches,
   producing the 50 BHP per cylinder at 200 r.p.m.
   After the closure of AGE, Blackstone & Co. played its role of being the poplar diesel engine
    builder, until the company was taken over by R A Lister and Company in 1937 and changed
    the name to Lister Blackstone. R A Lister & Company was later bought by the Hawker Siddeley
    Group in the year 1965 and, finally as the company went through the reorganization, Lister
    took the name as Lister Petter and Blackstone transformed asMirrlees Blackstone.


   With the further development, Mirrlees Blackstone was sold to MAN Diesel. MAN Diesel also
    took over the diesel businesses of the collapsed GEC. The new office and warehouse facility
    that came into existence served as spares and servicing aftermarket for Lister Blackstone
    engines, but this time it was MAN Diesel & Turbo tagline.  Today, MAN Diesel & Turbo UK is
    helping many automobile and spare manufacturers for reducing your overheads, maximizing
    your capability and keep the engines running with minimum downtime.
