*WMF was originally called Metallwarenfabrik Straub & Schweizer and was opened as a metal repairing workshop in Germany. Through mergers and acquisitions, by 1900 they were the world's largest producer and exporter of household metalware, mainly in the Jugendstil, or Art Nouveau style. In the research department of the Essen Krupp Werke, V2A steel (stainless steel) was developed in 1912. It was soon discovered that this material had a high utility value: for the first time, steel was stainless, acid-resistant, unbreakable, easy to clean, extremely durable and did not tarnish. Already in 1927 WMF produced cookware made of stainless steel for this reason. In 1930 the material was then protected for WMF under the name "Cromargan®". From 1932 cutlery was also made of it.

*In 1933, Samuel Bloomfield started in the business of manufacturing display and pie cases in a 2,000 square foot plant in Chicago. His sons, Daniel and Harold, assisted in the business. Samuel Bloomfield passed away in 1954, and Daniel and Harold Bloomfield took over the business. The product line was expanded to several hundred products creating the need for 93,200 sq. ft., plus 320,000 sq. ft. of vacant space for future expansion at 4546 West 47th Street in southwest Chicago. In 1984, Bloomfield along with four other Beatrice companies, Market Forge, Wells Manufacturing, Taylor Freezer and World Dryer, were purchased by an investment firm and structured under the corporate umbrella of Specialty Equipment Companies. Among Bloomfield’s major products are coffee and iced tea brewers, coffee warmers, insulated beverage dispensers, and glass coffee pots with customized silk screen graphics.
