We are delighted to be able to adopt the official, protected mark of Made in Britain – which is a mark recognised as a sign of quality.
As a member of Made in Britain we are excited to have this seal of approval that our expanded metal mesh is manufactured in Britain, at our site here in Hartlepool and has been since the 1890s.
Being able to display the Made in Britain mark will help us to demonstrate the high quality and great value of our British made products.
The mark demonstrates that we are a trusted company that values transparency, sustainability and ethical business practices. Increasingly it is being recognised as a mark of confidence.
Philip Astley, managing director of The Expanded Metal Company, commented: “I am so pleased that we have been accepted as members of the Made in Britain community.
“We have a long heritage of manufacturing expanded metal from our 25,000+ sqm home here in Hartlepool. And with that we have extensive knowledge in its design and manufacture which enables us to look at innovative applications.
“Being able to display the Made in Britain mark further demonstrate the quality of our products and our commitment to investing in local and sustainable practices.
“The team at Made in Britain have been very supportive and we’re already benefitting from attending its workshops and events. I look forward to working more closely with them and its members.”
John Pearce, chief executive of Made in Britain, added: “We’re delighted that The Expanded Metal Company has joined the community. We believe, the more the mark is used and seen, the more it is recognised as a mark of quality.
“In addition to getting access to the official protected mark, The Expanded Metal Company will also have access to the many other benefits that membership to Made in Britain brings, including support in sales, communications and export. We look forward to watching the company reach new markets through its membership with us.”
We’re now part of a growing community of more than 1,200 British manufacturers. You can view our profile, and that of other members in the directory on the Made in Britain website – www.madeinbritain.org.
