British Acoustic Films (BAF) moved into the Brewery Buildings in 1940 and little is known about their wartime production.

Production following the war involved the manufacture and assembly of Bell & Howell Cine Equipment under a 15 year licence agreement between BAF & Bell & Howell signed in 1946. Production started with 16mm Projectors in 1948. Followed by 8mm Cameras and Projectors in 1950 and 16mm Cameras in 1952. The Company name became Rank Precision Industries (RPI), a Division of The Rank Organisation.
