Where does Simpson come from?

The history of the Simpson brand is quite an interesting one. In 1849 a tinplate worker Named Alfred Simpson arrived with his family in South Australia and after various occupations, established himself as a tinsmith on Topham Street in Adelaide, 1853. Due to the establishment of agriculture in South Australia, Simpson began manufacturing that suited the industry. He grew his business into a manufacturing plant and named it the ‘Colonial Tinware Manufactory’. Their first direction towards home appliances was actually the manufacturing of safes, which gained a reputation as being ‘dynamite proof’.

In 1864, Simpson’s son, Alfred Muller Simpson, joined the company and by the time of Alfred Snr’s death in 1891, they were the largest metal manufacturing plant in Australia. In 1898, the company began enamel plating with porcelain. In the 1940’s, the company was known as Simpson and Son and began manufacturing white goods. In 1963 they merged with Pope Industries to form Simpson Pope Holdings. The Simpson brand, is now owned by Electrolux and they continue to produce household appliances.

An interesting side note is that Alfred Muller Simpsons son, Alfred Allen Simpson, better known as Allen Simpson, was an associate and supporter of the Royal Geographical Society.  When CT Madigan surveyed central Australia in 1929 the Simpson desert was named in his honour. Cape Simpson in Antarctica is aslo named after Allen Simpson due to his assistance with Douglas Mawson.
