Following the voluntary liquidation of Shaw and Copestake (SylvaC) in 1982, the plant and equipment (including moulds and name) purchased by North Midlands Co-operative Society and leased to a co-operative called Longton Ceramics. Eighteen months later the enterprise was fully taken over by United Co-operative Society and run under the name of Crown Winsor.
