Rolls-Royce grew from the engineering business of F H Royce which was established in 1884 and ten years later began to manufacture dynamos and electric cranes. C S Rolls established a separate business with F H Royce in 1904 because Royce had developed a range of cars which Rolls wanted to sell. A corporate owner was incorporated in 1906 with the name Rolls-Royce Limited.
In 1971 the same company, Rolls-Royce Limited, entered voluntary liquidation because it was unable to meet its financial obligations though it remains in existence today, still in liquidation, with a file number for its name. Its business and assets were bought by the government using a company created for the purpose named Rolls-Royce (1971) limited. This (1971) company remains in existence today and carries on Rolls-Royce business under the name Rolls-Royce plc.
Rolls-Royce plc returned to the sharemarkets in 1987 under the government of Margaret Thatcher. In 2003 ownership of Rolls-Royce plc was passed to Rolls-Royce Group plc incorporated 21 March 2003 which issued its own new shares for payment to the previous shareholders.
