Categories: Commerce, Craft / Design

Horatio Myer (7 June 1850 - 1 January 1916) was born Hereford, the son of a German Jewish immigrant. He moved to London and in 1876 in Vauxhall he set up business producing metal beds and later produced other furniture as well.  A new manufacturing site was opened in Huntingdon Cambridgeshire in 1962. The Vauxhall plant closed in 1982. The business remained in the family until July 2007. In 2013 it became part of the Steinhoff Group. The picture shows the extent of the Vauxhall plant, and the picture source is the best for the history of the company that we have found; it has a few adverts from the 50s/60s.
