The roots of the company began in Hong Kong with aluminum goods manufacturing and changed to cookware beginning in 1971 with the ascension of Stanley K. Cheng as CEO and chief inventor. The name of the firm is a transliteration of the Chinese words 'beautiful' (mai) and 'Asia' (yah). In 1972, the first line of cookware produced by Meyer was sold in London. Marketing distribution centers in Liverpool, England, and Milwaukee, Wisconsin, were founded in 1976 and 1980, respectively. Meyer's cookware is manufactured and distributed internationally with factories in China, Thailand and Italy. Cookware lines are comprised of stainless steel, hard-anodized aluminum and non-stick aluminum. The parent manufacturing firm is still based in Hong Kong while the distribution company moved to California in 1992. Revenues for the parent and subsidiary distributor were $287 million (US) for fiscal year 2005.
