In 1926 Harrisons, Davis & Company was registered in Kobe to act as a silk buying agency for Harrisons and Crosfield Limited (CLC/B/112) and also as an exporter of silk worldwide. In 1930 it was taken over by W.W. Jarmain and re-styled Jarmain, Davis and Company. In 1972 Harrisons and Crosfield acquired a 50% interest in the company and it was restyled Jarmain, Harrisons and Crosfield Limited. The partnership was dissolved in 1986, and the name was changed back to Jarmain, Davis and Company.
