    Company History

    In 1960, Proctor & Schwartz Electric Company merged with a manufacturer of irons and coffee makers, the Silex Company, to offer consumers an even wider array of appliances. The new company was known as the Proctor-Silex Corporation.

    In 1990, NACCO Industries, Inc. had the foresight to bring together two powerhouse appliance manufacturers – Hamilton Beach and Proctor-Silex to create the largest U.S. manufacturer of small kitchen appliances. Today, Hamilton Beach Brands, Inc. continues to grow with a progressive new image and continued dedication to serving consumers. Based in Richmond, Virginia, it employs approximately 550 people globally and sells over 33 million appliances every year.
