Thanks to Celia on the FL!

I was looking into this some more, and realized there was J Heinrich Ita in Vienna, but also the Ita hat factory in Amstetten (as in the display I posted a picture of). I was not sure whether they were actually related so I did some digging while I couldn't sleep.

The hat factory in Amstetten was founded by the Englishman Thomas Gramlick in 1908 in an existing mill. He then sold it on to Vinzenz Nobel in 1911, and 5 years later it came into the hands of Gustav and Ludwig Ita. On the obituary notice on Steve's site I saw they were J. heinrich Jta's children, so there is the link I was looking for! In 1919 Heinrich Ita (the grandson I assume) is in charge of the factory and he expands it enormously, making it one of Amstetten's most important businesses. By the beginning of the 1930s the company employed 900 workers in day and night Shifts, with almost all of the output being exported to England, until export to the UK became difficult and had to be halted due to the political situation in the lead up to WWII.

After the war the company's fate changed, although many women from Amstetten still found employment in the hat factory in the post war period. However, in the end the company folded, and the outdated factory building and site were sold to the German garment company Bücking and the municipality of Amstetten.
