Lettering far from clear but COULD be "C. WOODS" - equally might be something fairly different.

Not as clear as the machine on the left but lettering could be "LAING".

LAING - as a contractor? or manufacturer of the machinery?

Thinking that this sign relates to John Laing (or John Laing & Sons) - a major construction company.
