He established the firm in 1852 as Hobbs and Company to manufacture locks based on his patents. By 1855 there was a factory at 33 Lawrence Lane, City of London with showrooms at 97 Cheapside. In 1860, following Hobbs’ death, John Matthias Hart took over management of the firm and began manufacturing safes and strong room doors. The company held a Royal Warrant from 1861 and supplied safes to the Bank of England. The firm was incorporated in 1887 as Hobbs Hart and Company Limited, the year Hart died. The registered address was 76-77 Cheapside, City of London, with manufacturing of safe and strong-room doors at Wharncliffe Works, Arlington Street, Islington. Operations moved to works and offices built in Staffa Road, Leyton in 1936. The range of products was increased and supplied to major banks, the royal household, government, hospitals and railways, and overseas exports developed.
