History Edit

Pick Everard was founded by John Breedon Everard, a civil engineer in 1866 at 6 Millstone Lane, Leicester. Samuel Perkins Pick, an architect joined John Breedon Everard as his assistant in 1882 and as a partner in 1888.

John Breedon Everard was the son of Breedon Everard, the joint founder of quarrying and mining business Ellis and Everard Ltd (later Aggregate Industries). He was the nephew of the brewer William Everard and in 1875 he designed a new tower brewery for Everards Brewery at Southgate St, Leicester.[1]

At the beginning of the 20th century, Bernard Everard (son of John Breedon Everard) became a partner of the firm, which changed its name to Everard, Son and Pick. William Keay, a civil engineer who worked for Everard, Son and Pick became a partner circa 1920 and in 1925, Martin Gimson, a civil engineer became the fourth partner, changing the firm's name to Pick, Everard, Keay and Gimson.[2] The company today is called Pick Everard.
