Morphy Richard Brand

We think before you buy something from a company it is always a good idea to know a little something about the company. First of all Morphy Richards are a UK brand based in Swinton Meadows, Yorkshire, England and they were founded back in 1936. 

Donal Morphy was an electrical engineer and Charles Richards was a salesman who combined their knowledge and started this now well known company.

In the early 1970s they joined with Hotpoint, GEC, English Electric and dominated the UK market for millions of household products. Almost every home in the UK would have had some form of appliance made by Morphy Richards, be that a toaster or an iron.

They are now owned by the Glenn Dimplex Group who are an Irish based consumer electrical good firm who acquired them in 1985. They have continued to produce household appliances and as you can imagine are up against plenty of competition in this market.
