Steelite International plc was established in 1983, when David Edward Dunn Johnson bought the hotelware division of Royal Doulton.[2][3]

The company operates from Dale Hall Works and the adjacent Albany Works.[2] Dale Hall Works was founded in 1790; from about 1937 to about 1998 it was operated by Dunn Bennett & Co Ltd (a company established in 1876 in Hanley), then by Steelite International.[4][5]
