About Us Mayfair Toilet Seats
In the mid-1950s, Bemis Manufacturing decided to expand their toilet seats into a new distribution channel – retail. However, in order to sell seats in department, hardware and specialty chain stores, Bemis needed to create a new product line and name that would not conflict with the Bemis brand in the wholesale segment. The Mayfair brand was born, and the new line was marketed to housewares buyers throughout the Midwest in the late 1950s. For Bemis, the launch of Mayfair signaled the birth of one of the bath industry's most well-known brands.
