In 1912, nearly a century after it was founded, the company became ‘Miller, Rayner, Haysom Ltd: Naval, Military, Shipping & Colonial Outfitters’. By this time, it had added branches in Paris and Rotterdam and a manufacturing operation in Liverpool to its growing global footprint. In the same year, the company notably manufactured crew uniforms for White Star Line’s Titanic and Olympic Class.
White Star Line was just one of a number of impressive clients for the booming British business. Its client history reads like a ‘who’s who’ of global transport giants, including BOAC, The Cunard Steam Ship Company, BP Tanker Company, P&O, Orient Line, Union Castle, Royal Mail Steam Packet Company, British India, Bibby Line, British Rail and Blue Funnel Line.
