In 1851, Isaac Merrit Singer with New York lawyer Edward Clark established I.M. Singer & Co as a manufacturer of sewing machines. Best known for its sewing machines, it was renamed Singer Manufacturing Company in 1865, then The Singer Company in 1963. Originally all of its manufacturing was done at facilities in New York City. It is currently based in LaVergne, TN near Nashville.
Company headquarters were in the Singer Building, designed by architect Ernest Flagg, who also designed two landmark residences for Bourne. Constructed in 1906 at New York City during Bourne’s tenure, the Singer Building (demolished in 1968) was then the tallest building in the world. In addition to works in North America, the Singer Corporation also had the honour of creating the largest clock face in the world, the Singer’s clock at its Clydebank, Scotland factory which opened in 1885 and closed in 1984.
