Administrative/Biographical history: The British Productivity Council was established by the British government in the wake of the Second World War. Its primary purpose was to foster good industrial relations and introduce more effective and efficient management techniques. Local associations were established throughout the country. From 1955 to 1965 the Mid Glamorgan area was served by the Neath and Port Talbot Local Productivity Committee. In 1965 this body became known as the Neath Port Talbot and Mid Glamorgan Local Productivity Committee. In 1967 it changed its name to the Mid Glamorgan Productivity Committee, before being renamed a year later as the British Productivity Council - Mid Glamorgan Association. It was finally abolished in 1978.
