The Steam Engine Makers' Society was founded in Liverpool on 2 November 1824. The original members of the Union included fitters, turners and steam engine erectors but the Union broadened its scope in 1847 to include millwrights, steam-engine patternmakers and the makers of tools used in the manufacture of steam engines. The society finally amalgamated with the Amalgamated Society of Engineers to form the Amalgamated Engineering Union in 1920.
