Midland Lead Manufacturers Ltd was established in 1983 and has since developed into one of the UK's major lead sheet suppliers. The basic business values driving us are simple and straightforward: we aim to innovatively manufacture lead sheet, which is quality certified by the BBA and competitively priced. What's more, customer service and responsibly running our business are at the forefront of our thinking.
Our current production facility includes a 13 acres site with two huge melting kettles, a casting machine and four cutting lines, where we produce in excess of 20,000 tonnes of lead sheet annually - over 400,000 tonnes over the past 25 years. Although the production of lead sheet to customers' specification (thicknesses between 0.44 up to 3.55mm) is our core business, we also supply ancillary products and are increasingly manufacturing lead-lined boards and lead ingots upon request.
From the beginning, our lead sheet has been certified by the BBA to ensure our products' performance. Besides our constant commitment to providing high-quality lead products, we have also taken a pro-active approach to our environmental and health & safety responsibilities. We are BSI certified for successfully implementing both an environmental management system (BS EN ISO 14001:2004) and an occupational health & safety system (BS OHSAS 18001:2007).
From our centrally-located site in the Midlands, we despatch an average of 150 pallets of lead daily to destinations in the UK - and worldwide. Via our excellent network of transport partners, our delivery performance in the UK is normally two to three days (from placing your order, through production, to delivery). To further facilitate our international despatch, we've also created a dedicated area for loading export containers on site.
Due to the many different applications of lead - as a weatherproofing material, soundproofing material, radiation shield or as ballast - Midland Lead's customers come from a range of industries: the building, entertainment, heavy-lifting, marine and medical industry. But whatever the customers' background, our staff will do their utmost to provide efficient though personal customer service. We employ five knowledgeable sales representatives covering the UK sales areas to meet customers and prospects face-to-face to deal with their lead enquiries, backed up by a team of experienced sales administrators.
Apart from doing everything we can to manufacture and market our lead products to the best standard, we've got a few more matters that we're really dedicated to. Since opening 25 years ago, we've invested time and money to support lead work training courses throughout the UK. Besides sponsoring these independent roofing training groups, Midland Lead supports new talent via different apprenticeships onsite for technicians, sales staff, administrators and other craftspeople. What's more since 2006 Midland Lead has teamed up with the NSPCC to help them in their efforts to protect children at risk of abuse and neglect.
