John Aynsley & Sons China was founded in 1775, John Aynsley in Lane End, Longton, Staffordshire. The company was extremely profitable and in June 1970 Spode put in a bid, followed by an even bigger bid in July by Denbyware. Eventually, Waterford Glass won the bid. In 1970 John Aynsley and Sons was taken over by Waterford and renamed Aynsley China Ltd. In 1987 Waterford sold the company in order to focus the group’s fine china sales on the worldwide Wedgwood brand. In May 1997, Aynsley China was acquired by The Belleek Pottery Group in Ireland. The company closed its Stoke-on-Trent factory in September 2014. As of July 2015 the factory shop is still open but its future is uncertain as the site is being advertised as for sale.
