Mastermelt Ltd are now paperless!!

We are finally going paperless!!
Mastermelt Ltd have taken the huge leap to stop printing and start saving (trees).
We realised that just recycling our paper isn’t enough.
After many months of working on and installing a new and improved IT system, we can finally say we are now working without the use of our printers.
Did you know? Deforestation causes more climate change emissions than global transport!

COVID 19 UPDATE – Industrial Customers


Due to the unprecedented situation we are all facing, we will be scaling back operations at our London offices from Friday 27th March.  However, our management staff and sales representatives are, as always, just a phone call away, while our administration and accounts staff have been set up to work from home.  Thus we do not anticipate serious disruption to customer service. 

Our industrial materials site at Buxton continues to work normally, with deliveries and processing of customer materials operating as usual.

The Group’s metal trading, banking and end refiner partners also continue to support Mastermelt, enabling us to make metal credits and payments on time.

The Mastermelt Group will continue monitoring the development of Covid-19, both internationally and nationally, and will follow the recommendations and guidelines from all relevant authorities and governments.

The health and safety of our staff remains our top priority, whilst at the same time continuing to provide the high level of service our customers and suppliers are accustomed to.

We will keep you updated of any changes and hope that through these very strange times, you stay safe.

Our guy is flying high! ✈️

About the event:

The 13th of December saw the 83rd British Allied Trades Federation’s Benevolent Society Ball take place at The St Johns Hotel Solihull, with Jewellery & Watch as Headline Sponsor.

Incorporated within this longstanding annual Charity Event were the National Association of Jewellers Member Awards, hosted by Harriet Kelsall NAJ Chairman and Simon Forrester NAJ Chief Executive.

The awards are designed to flag up all that is most excellent about the UK’s extremely diverse jewellery industry: its bright new talent, its design skills and creativity and its capacity to truly serve its customers whether they are other businesses, on-line jewellery buyers or the consumer in the High Street.
The Benevolent Society Ball attracts guests from the jewellery, giftware, surface engineering and luggage and leathergoods associations which are member organisations of the British Allied Trades Federation.









Well done to the other workshop employees on being shortlisted for Workshop Employee of the Year 2018.
We had a great time meeting you all, true talents!
