The ancient Sheffield firms of Thomas Turner and Harrison Bro. & Howson were purchased Viners was started by Adolphe Viener and his sons in 1901. Other factories were in Hong Kong and Japan. Its production was distributed in the United States through Raimond Silver Mfg. Co Inc. One of the Sons, Ruben Viner, became the driving force and the firm prospered in 1960 with a modern factory in Sheffield and subsidiaries in Ireland, France and Australia. But as the business grew, far eastern imports started flooding the UK market as early as the 1970's. Struggling to stay afloat financially, Viners began importing cutlery but eventually the company went under in 1985. The brand is now owned by US based Oneida, the world's largest cutlery company.
