George Newton and Thomas Chamber were partners in the Phoenix foundry at Snow Hill, Sheffield and along with Henry Longden they signed a lease to extract coal and ironstone from the Thorncliffe valley. The partners set up works on the Thorncliffe site to the north of Sheffield. The company built The Thorncliffe Ironworks.
The company were not only mining coal and ironstone but building blast furnaces, coke ovens and chemical plant employing nearly 8,000 people. Heavy section iron, cast in the foundry was used in two iconic structures:
Tower Bridge, crossing the river Thames, London and the Eddystone Lighthouse, South West England.
By-products of the making of coke for the blast furnaces at Thorncliffe were gases, tars and oils. By the beginning of the 1890s a germicidal disinfectant had been developed from the oils and in 1893 this was patented as Izal. The product was soon available not only in liquid form, but also as powder, soap, cream and ointment. Perhaps their best-known product was the famous Izal medicated toilet paper.
Newton Chambers was taken over by Central & Sheerwood in 1973, the Izal assets, were pre-sold at a price equivalent to the purchase price of the whole group to Sterling-Winthrop. This experience was published under “The fall and rise of the Newton Chambers group” The company carried on as Trianco Redfyre following the collapse and break up of Newton Chambers.
