"William Foster & Co Ltd was an agricultural machinery company based in Lincoln, Lincolnshire, England and usually just called "Fosters of Lincoln."

The company can be traced back to 1846, when William Foster purchased a flour mill in Lincoln.

William Foster then proceeded to start small scale manufacturing of mill machinery and threshing machinery.

The mill was converted to an iron foundry by 1856, thus becoming the original Wellington Foundry.

During the First World War they built some of the first tanks for the British Army"
