The company was founded in 1899 on Robert Street in St. Paul, Minnesota by William Edwin Mowrey and moved to its present location on University Avenue in 1911. William developed a line of dental alloys as an outlet for the gold he refined.  The company has changed ownership four times since its inception and remains at its second location in the midway area of St. Paul.
