Our History

Louis Hamilton and Chester Beach

Louis Hamilton and Chester Beach teamed up in the early 1900s in a collaboration that would lead to more than 100 years of industry firsts that would enhance homes and businesses around the globe. One early milestone was Mr. Beach’s perfection of a universal electric motor that could operate on both alternating and direct current. This patented motor was used to power machines that ended the era of muscle-powered chores such as mixing. Over the years, products introduced under the Hamilton Beach name have made life easier and more enjoyable.
