We began life nearly a century ago in Birmingham as brass founders, producing fittings for window furniture, railway carriages and cabinet handles. Through the mid 1900’s we went on to incorporate an impressive variety of materials and processes into our fixture making capabilities, including metalwares, woodwork and lacquering. This grounding in design and engineering served us hugely well as we began working with manufacturers and retailers large and small to anticipate and meet changing consumer demand for quality, design-led products at affordable prices.

Challenges have come and gone down the years but we’ve consistently expanded our operation, moving to a succession of new and improved facilities to meet customer demand.

 

We’ve seen some monumental changes to the homeware sector along the way – notably as production processes began moving Eastwards from the 1980’s onwards. But while trends and tastes have continued to evolve, our longstanding heritage and commitment to quality and affordability, coupled with a deep insight into emerging trends, has endured.

 

This has enabled us to move with the times, forge new partnerships and ultimately, keep one step ahead of the competition.
