From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Worshipful Company of Founders is one of the Livery Companies of the City of London, England. The Founders, or workers in brass and bronze, were incorporated under a Royal Charter in 1614. However, with the development of technology, the ancient craft grew obsolete. Now, the Company exists, along with a majority of Livery Companies, as a charitable foundation. It also supports the foundry industry by awarding research grants and scholarships.

The Founders' Company ranks thirty-third in the order of precedence of Livery Companies. Its motto is God, The Only Founder.
