Nestler, an UK airframer company in 1936

Hello Everyone,

Do you know this Nestler company based in UK and apparently specialized in A/C building (subcontractor)?
Apparently, this company should have been created in 1936 with a capital of 400 000 £ with the official agreement of the Air Ministry to sustain the massive three-year english A/C production program. This company should work closely with the engine maker Alvis.
I got this information from french archives which mention Nesler as potential company for bomber production in case of license agreement.

Thanking you in anticipation
Cheers

Jérôme

Jerome,

Browsing in the Flight Magazine archives there seems to have been (or still is?) a Nestler Ltd, established in 1913 and specializing in portable aircraft sheds and hangars...
Of WW I years there also has been a Nestler Scout aeroplane.
See picture here:

Leendert,

Thanking you for the info provided.
I guess this is Nestler Ltd who was approached because of aero experience (altough limited in A/C production) and working closely in coordination with Alvis Plc.
At this time, the Air Ministry would secure the massive three-year A/C production program. This company would provide additional capacity to the current UK airframers in term of A/C production.
Regards

Jérôme
