about us

What We Offer

Since we were founded in 1984 our specialist knowledge and expertise has been supporting retailers, printers and manufacturers around the globe. Our vision and ever expanding capabilities make us the UK's leading authority in the field of magnetic and attractive products.

Unlike some magnetics companies we're not just a distributor of magnetic and attractive material, we design, manufacture and add value at our Sheffield site, which is why we're licensed to use the "Made In Sheffield" name and logo. As an ISO accredited company for both design and manufacture, our processes ensure a consistent high quality of product and service.

Service

Our mission is to use our knowledge and skills to provide competitive solutions to satisfy a client's needs wherever a magnet can be used as a foundation to add value.

We pride ourselves on quality, integrity, positivity, value and commitment, and strive to provide the highest level of advice, service and support, which is why our experienced sales team is on hand to offer advice from 8.30am to 6pm Monday to Friday.

We're the UK's largest stock holder of flexible magnetic and attractive material allowing us to offer a next day delivery service, we can also provide a same day delivery if required.


Innovation

From our inception we've been dedicated to innovation within the magnet industry. This drive for continuous improvement has seen us become the UK's leader in providing magnetic and attractive solutions to some of the world's biggest retailers, communications companies, and the UK's most iconic car brand.

We're proud to say we invented and patented the world's first co-extruded rare earth magnetic tape, and we hold patents on the products we've designed and created. Our ability to recycle flexible magnetic sheet and extrusion into new products is unique, and we can also boast that we're a zero landfill company.


Design

Whatever your industry or requirement we can provide assistance and add value at any stage from conception to production to installation. We have the skills and experience to design bespoke magnetic and attractive solutions to suit your needs.


Manufacturing

Our experienced and skilled engineers manufacture the components for a large proportion of our magnetic products on a daily basis. They also produce prototypes for the bespoke solutions designed in-house, which draw on our years of expertise and knowledge. Once approved the custom-made product will go into production with some orders running into the tens of thousands, ensuring our engineers are always kept busy on the lathes, milling machines, grinders and injection moulder.

Assembly

As you'd expect the assemblies team works closely with our engineers, hand finishing the magnetic products crafted here in Sheffield, assembling, magnetising and inspecting the products prior to dispatch.


Extrusion

Our extrusion lines can produce 6 miles (10,000m) of flexible magnetic extrusion in a single working day, if we ran them for 5 days a week, 52 weeks a year we'd have enough extrusion to reach from our factory to Moscow.

We produce extrusion with widths from 6mm to 60mm in a range of profile shapes, standard or custom to suit our customer's applications.

Injection Moulding

Our injection moulding facilities allow us to produce a number of standard and bespoke casings and enclosures for our magnetic products. If you have a requirement for a rubber or plastic encased magnet or sequence of magnets we can help.


Kiss & Die Cutting

We can die cut or kiss cut a whole host of shapes as required. Kiss cutting is the process of not totally cutting through a material, leaving the desired pieces within a whole sheet to be stripped out when required.


Resizing

We have the capability to resize our standard length and widths of flexible magnetic sheet, ferrous sheet and ferrous media to suit your requirements, whether it's rolls or custom sized cut pieces.
