How We Started 

Earl Morris founded the Earl L. Morris Company in downtown Los Angeles in 1945. After years of experience selling fittings, pipe valves, and other plumbing products, he found the type of products he enjoyed selling the most were those specified by an engineer. 


Continued Innovation 

In 1955, Earl Morris established a new manufacturing division called Acorn Engineering Company. The company began as a small manufacturer specializing in specified plumbing products. Acorn manufactured a line of prefabricated stainless steel shower equipment for the school and institutional markets in the 1950s. 


Rapid Growth 

To grow its operations with new acquisitions and product lines, the company shifted to its present-day location in City of Industry, CA, in 1960. In 1969, the brand engineered and produced a market-leading product line of deep-drawn and fabricated stainless steel plumbing fixtures. With this addition, the brand quickly grew to become a world leader in the manufacturer of stainless steel plumbing fixtures.

Expansion and Leadership 

From 1979 to 1982, the brand made several acquisitions and purchases for expansion. They acquired Aluminum Plumbing Fixture Co in 1979. In 1982, the brand designed, planned, and constructed corporate offices at 15125 Proctor Ave. From 1985 to 1995, the company had a new generation of leadership for taking the company to greater heights. 


Where We Are Now 

As Acorn grew, it acquired companies and partnerships in similar and related fields. Also, the brand formed a new parent company to encompass all the divisions- the Acorn Family of Companies. In 2012, the Acorn Family of Companies was renamed Morris Group International® to better promote the diverse industries and product lines it represents.
