Handley Page Ltd was formed by Frederick Handley Page in 1909.  The firm's most famous aircraft from World War I was the O/400 "Bloody Paralyzer" bomber.

Handley Page continued to design and build excellent bombers and transports through World War II and into the post-war years including the Hampton and Halifax bombers.

In the mid-1960s, the British Government decreed that it would not do business with aviation firms that did not merge.  Handley Page had no interest in a forced merger and closed its doors in 1970.
