Stratton previously went by the name of Stratnoid, which was founded in 1860 as a knitting needle company. The company changed its name to Stratton and began producing compacts in 1923, importing components from the US.  By 1930, Stratton produced all of its own compacts in its factory in Birmingham, England. At this time, the company held a 50% share of the UKs cosmetics industry.  Kigu was also an English compact company known for their quality, design and  innovations from the 1940-70s.
