The company was started by Harry Frederick Stanley Morgan in 1910, and it was operated by its founder until his death in the late fifties (the company has since been then been run by the Morgan family, with the founder's son taking control of the company; and afterwards, the next of kin taking over the company's operations after the death of the boss) (Sharma 2010, p. 1).
