THE HISTORY OF BAKER PERKINS (NEW ZEALAND) LTD.
Sam Moscrip, the youngest brother of Mrs Joseph Allen Baker, started
as a salesman with Joseph Baker & Sons in 1879. He settled in New
Zealand in 1924 as the firm's first agent. Jack Lawrence joined him to
install bakery equipment shipped from England, remained to make further
installations as new plant arrived, and eventually took Moscrip's place.
For many years he was the only Baker Perkins salesman and engineer regularly
travelling over both islands.
