A. Bromet & Co. were established by 1878 by Abraham Bromet. Bromet retired in 1890, and the business passed to the remaining partners, Emanuel Henry Levi, Emanuel Hyam Cohen and Samuel Harris, who were later joined by Joseph Schneiders. This partnership was dissolved in 1900, leaving Emanuel Levi as the sole partner.
