Hinks and Sons company was first incorporated in 1873 (and re-incorporated in 1896). Newspaper reports suggest that James retired as Managing Director and became Chairman in about 1897–98, when Joseph took over. The firm had bases in London and Birmingham. Important customers included railway companies, which used oil lamps to light stations, trains and signals.

With an eye to the domestic market, Hinks’ lamps were also decorative and borrowing from the designs of beautiful European china and porcelain table decorations their lamps were also a byword for domestic beauty, so much so that there is still a flourishing market for antique Hinks’ lamps. They also developed specialist lamps and hurricane lanterns for India which was one of their most lucrative markets.

Hinks’ lamps were state-of-the-art until the early 20th century when electric lighting became the norm.
