Who are the Coachmakers?

Coaches, cars and aircraft; from traditional to cutting-edge


The Coachmakers is a City of London Livery Company, founded by Royal Charter in 1677 by King Charles II.

The craft and art of coachmaking has evolved to cover the design, engineering, manufacture, sales, service and maintenance of cars, vans, trucks, aeroplanes and helicopters. As a Company we are closely involved with our modern day industrial sectors – automotive and aerospace as well as coachmaking – and have, in addition, strong links with the Royal Navy, Army and Royal Air Force. We are an active and vigorous charitable organisation working in these constituencies.
