Johnson Mattheys role in the precious metals industry started in 1817 when Percival Johnson opened a gold assayers business in London. The business continued on as an assayers office until 1851 when George Matthey joined the business. Within a year, the company had changed its name to Johnson & Matthey and gained status as the official assayer to the Bank of England.
Over the course of the next century, Johnson & Matthey became a leader in the precious metals industry. That profile expanded into North America as Johnson & Matthey opened two refining centers and an assayers facility on the continent.
