It Started With An Iron
As so often begins stories of great companies, Proctor Silex started incredibly small. Proctor Silex owes it's existence to a one person start-up found in a 14 year-old boy from Jackson, Michigan, named Joe Meyers who had a passion for inventing. He started out playing around with one of his mother's irons, an item which existed at the time only with fixed temperature settings. He went on to design a way in which to create irons with adjustable temperature settings and by 1926, he located a company to support his endeavors and begin selling the first ever adjustable temperature iron. Proctor & Schwartz, inventors of the automatic toaster, soon became captivated by the boy's company: "Liberty Gauge," and purchased it in 1929. Proctor & Shwartz then manufactured toasters and irons for the next 30 years, until they picked up the Silex manufacturing company, producers of coffee makers. This marked the start of Proctor Silex's introduction to a whole range of coffee products in 1960.
