Celebrate the latest achievement of Heritage Silverware of Small Heath, run by the McDonagh family

Heritage cupHeritage silverware2Heritage Silverware products were first seen by the writer a couple of years ago in ‘Carters’ on Wake Green Road in Moseley, who sourced tableware and furnishings locally when setting up the restaurant. Co-founder Holly Jackson said that the cutlery and crockery had been manufactured in Birmingham, by Heritage.

It was good to hear this – and also that the firm, Heritage, based in Green Lane, Small Heath, was already supplying local hotels and also the Ritz, the Dorchester and the Orient Express trains.

Heritage Silverware designed and produced 23,000 pieces of silver and china, and other complementary tabletop products, in just seven weeks at their Birmingham factory.

Deploring the closing down of so many manufacturers in this sector, Martin McDonagh credits this success to high tech facilities and a highly skilled workforce which, he adds, “give Heritage Collection the ability to design, and manufacture unique cutlery, glassware and tableware which very few companies in the world can match.”

He ends with the same message presented by the Davies family, who inspired this site:

“This success underlines the strength of Birmingham still as a great manufacturing base, despite the recession. We hear so much doom and gloom about the economy; happily it’s another success story that the people of Birmingham can be proud about.”
