VINERS
Sheffield
The business was started around 1901 by Adolphe Viener and his sons. Viners bought two ancient Sheffield firms of cutlers: Thomas Turner and Harrison Bro. & Howson. 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 the 1960 with a modern factory in Sheffield and subsidiaries in Ireland, France and Australia. But as the business grew, far eastern imports started to flood in to the UK from the mid 1970s. They started importing cutlery to finish and stamp "Made in Sheffield", but the loans for the expansion were crippling the firm and they went bust in 1985. The brand is now owned by US based Oneida, the world's largest cutlery company.
From 1925 the firm uses the trade mark ALPHA (bought by Harrison Brothers & Howson). Another trade mark was RESILCO
