Siemens

Siemens & Halske was founded by Werner von Siemens and Johann Georg Halske on 12 October 1847. Siemens & Halske (S & H) was incorporated in 1897, and then merged parts of its activities with Schuckert & Co., Nuremberg in 1903 to become Siemens-Schuckert. In 1907, Siemens (Siemens & Halske and Siemens-Schuckert) had 34,324 employees and was the seventh-largest company in the German empire by number of employees.

During the 1920s and 1930s, Siemens started to manufacture Lighting products radios, television sets, and electron microscopes., which continued into the 1940s.

During the final years of World War II, numerous Siemens plants and factories in Berlin and other major cities were destroyed by Allied air raids. To prevent further losses, manufacturing was therefore moved to alternative places and regions not affected by the air war. The goal was to secure continued production of important war-related and everyday goods. According to records, Siemens was operating almost 400 alternative or relocated manufacturing plants at the end of 1944 and in early 1945.

Otto's is a family run business and was founded in Exeter, Devon in 2013, when we took on our first retail space in Exeters' up and coming independent area around Fore Street. I founded Otto's as a young 22 year old, after leaving my hometown of Coventry and my job in the construction trade, with a modest pot of savings as a start up!

The original shop dated back to the late 1800's where it had many incarnations, such as a butchers and a car showroom, it has always been a great retail space, full of character! We operated both our webstore and shop from here for 3 years before we sadly outgrew the space due to the expansion of our webstore.

We moved into our new warehouse & showroom in May 2016. We instantly fell in love with the industrial aspect of the space which is a complimentary backdrop for our stock. The warehouse provided us with a large retail space, stock room, office, workshop and loading bay and was a huge step forward from our humble origins.

The warehouse dates back to the 1930s, when it served as a Morris car garage, and a telephone exchange during the 1950's & 1960's. It retains all its original features including it's concertina garage doors, exposed pipework and beams.

Otto's is now run by a father & son team, Lewis & David Macskimming. David runs the workshop & restoration while I, Lewis run the website, shipping and logistics. We source stock from all over Europe and ship worldwide, providing well curated and sympathetically restored 20th century antiques.
