During the 1920's Max Wiseman built up a successful business selling imported rolled gold spectacle frames, lenses and cases from Germany.

In 1932 he purchased the entire contents of a factory in Rathenau, then the major centre for optics in Germany, and with the help of his craftsmen relocated the factory to London. From then on the company became known throughout the world as Algha Works
