About Myers and Sons Ltd:
In 1837, Meyer Myers established Myers and Sons Ltd in Birmingham UK in premises at 2 Newhall St and moved into purpose built works in Charlottes St in 1854.
In the 1850s Birmingham was the centre of the world's pen trade with more than half the world's pens and nibs being made in that city and surrounds. The Birmingham Pen Trade, as it became known, employed thousands of people and developed new manufacturing techniques to mass produce pens and nibs cheaply and efficiently. Pens made in Birmingham in the 1850s were sold all over the world and the Birmingham Pen Trade is often credited with encouraging education and literacy by making pens affordable to people who previously could not afford to write.
Myers and Sons were at the forefront of the Birmingham Pen Trade along with names that are still with us today like Leonardt, Esterbrook and Gillots. Myers and Sons made a huge range of office, writing accessories and became famous for their unique (at the time) Bulldog Paper Clip.
The firm flourished until it was sold to Avery International in 1985 when it was transformed from a typical English family business into a division of an multinational corporation. The business continues to this day under the Avery name.
