During the 1930's, appliances such as irons were a luxury item and were well out of a housewife's budget by far. So Donal Morphy teamed up with Charles Richards and took this unique opportunity by storm, introducing affordable appliances to the average person's household. 1954 saw the first heat-controlled steam and dry iron manufactured, far exceeding the expectations of its Managing Directors. The new models featured pioneering buttons and controls including the famous beveled sole plates.
By the 1970's Morphy Richards, alongside Hotpoint, had become the largest production company for electrical appliances in the UK and now actively innovates and develops new products that keep up with our ever-changing lifestyles. It is now believed that more households in the UK have a Morphy Richards appliance than any other brand.
