Who are the people behind Midland Lead?
You’ll enjoy dealing with Midland Lead. Customers say we’re easy to work with – and tell us we really know our product. As the UK’s only lead manufacturer to offer machine cast lead, rolled lead and sandcast lead, we work with people in lots of industries, particularly construction, healthcare and heritage.
There’s a lot of expertise at Midland Lead. Many of our personnel have been in the business for twenty or more years. So if you need to talk to someone about lead-lined boards for the medical industry, or a particular thickness of lead sheet, or about how we make our sandcast lead, you can. That’s the benefit of having all that knowledge in-house.
For us, lead is a bit of a passion. We care about what we do for you – and how we do it. The production processes we follow are so meticulous, and the checks we put our products through are so stringent, that we work hard to get every order absolutely right.
