Makers of fine English hardware since 1914
Our product range is designed to accommodate all the features for modern living, suited from a stunning collection of finishes.
The elegance of our beautifully crafted products is built on the lived experience and inspiration of generations of craftsmen
In 1914 George Allart started his eponymous business from a small workshop in Birmingham and over the decades that have followed the company has continued to grow and diversify, making investment across CNC machinery, Electroplating, CAD design facilities, MRP & CRM systems, along with our continued training for all our personnel.
We continue our impassioned focus on making Fine English hardware with real heritage.
Responsibly designed, manufactured and delivered
We recognise the value and importance of sustainability in running our business, not just for our company, but for our employees, our customers and our community too. As such we continuously review all of our activities with the objective to improve our recycling, waste reduction and energy saving.
Toby McGrail, Director
Our brass and bronze material is 100% recyclable. Old or unwanted stock items, cosmetically damaged products and off-cuts are regularly melted down and reused in new production runs.
Our products have been designed to be manufactured efficiently and as we make our products to order we have dramatically reduced wasted materials, time and energy. We regularly review energy-efficiency improvements in all aspects of our business.
We’ve moved to a 100% compostable paper-based bubble wrap and swapped plastic adhesive tape for paper stickers. We rationalised our range of box sizes to create a better choice of size options to prevent unnecessary waste and removed staples to ensure all our boxes can be recycled.
Having reviewed our delivery schedules we have reduced daily deliveries to single customers, consolidating them into pre-selected days. With this change, along with the use of electric vehicles for local deliveries and collections, we have significantly reduced our carbon footprint.
