About the Lux Clock Manufacturing
The Lux Clock
Manufacturing Company of Waterbury, Connecticut was founded
in 1914 by Paul Lux (1868-1947), his wife Caroline,
and their two sons, Fred and Herman. It is
thought that at that time The Lux Clock Mfg. Company
produced only clock movements. In the years
that followed, as the business grew,
the company moved to larger buildings, only to have nearly
everything destroyed by fire. The company
was rebuilt with the help of family and
friends, and in the 1920s a larger plant was built at 95
Johnson Street, Waterbury, Connecticut, which was expanded
in 1931 and in 1936. During this period, the Lux Clock Mfg.
Company produced 3,000 clocks per day. The Lux Clock Mfg.
clocks until 1941, at which time they made
war related products. Clock production resumed after the
war. In 1954, a plant was established in Lebanon, Tennessee,
a plant in Oakville, Ontario, Canada opened in the late
1950ís. In June of 1961 The Robertshaw-Fulton Controls
out the Lux clock Mfg. Company and produced
clocks and timers with the Robertshaw Controls Company, Lux
Time Division name.
In 1986, Robertshaw Controls Company was sold
to the Siebe group, of London, England. Kitchen timers that
carry the LUX name are being produced to this day, although
not by the original Lux Clock Company.
