Yes Harrild & Sons are still around and I believe flourishing, albeit under
a slightly different name.  They are situated in the East End of London
(England).  Their details are as follows:

W.L. Harrild & Partners Ltd.
Unit 3, Alpine Business Centre
Eastbury Road
E6 4LP

Contacts: Irene and Richard Coe
Tel: +44 171 473 5345
Fax: +44 171 473 6673

They are no longer bookbinders and I don't believe that they manufacture
Wooden Equipment.  However, they still deal in Nipping and Standing presses
and are the U.K. agent for Schimanek Board Cutters.

If you were to contact them, I am sure that they would answer any queries.
