The James Morrison Brass Mfg Co. was founded in Toronto in 1864. The business prospered and relocated in 1972 to a larger premises on Adelaide Street West. In addition to brass foundling and finishing, the company did business in engineers, steamfitters, plumbers and gas fitters' supplies. In 1930, the company was acquired by the Equitable Securities Corporation of Montreal and Toronto, becoming the Morrison Brass Corporation. At the time it was one of four Canadian companies making cast iron, steel and brass valves, high quality brass and bronze for pulp and paper plants, locomotive and marine equipment, plumbing, heating products, and gauges for steam, air and water.
