Bramah Stainless Steel tableware

Recommended Posts

I have been searching the internet to find out information about a company called 'Bramah'. I believe that it only had a short manufacturing life (although I may be wrong) and they produced tea sets etc. I would like to know if anyone knows anything about them, whether any catalogues of their products exist, who designed for them, if they still exist and if they do how I can contact them or alternatively perhaps a company that took them over - in fact anything at all about them.

Bramah stainless tableware was made at the factory in Halfway which is now Doncasters as pointed out above. They always laid on a fantastic party for the employees children at Christmas!

Bramah made aerospace items,as well as tableware. I used to visit them in the 60s, when I worked as an auditor with the ministry of aviation.

The Bramah businesses no longer trade in Sheffield.

 

If anyone needs any information regarding the Bramah businesses they could PM me. I am a friend of the family and will pass on questions. I could probably put my hands on a few of the tea sets if anyone wanted one.

I worked for Bramahs for 27 years, and yes, they did manufacture high quality stainless steel tableware, which was shipped all over the world. Sadly, like a lot of things, cheap imports took over, and production ceased. The aerospace side of the business absorbed the employees. The site at Halfway is now Doncaster Bramah, and as far as I know, continues solely in aerospace manufacture. The front office block and canteen now appear to be a lot of small businesses (incuding a nursery). A sign of the times!
