PML Plating Ltd was formed in 2009 by Peter Ledger a silver plater who began working in the industry in 1978. Sadly Peter found himself redundant after the firm he worked for within the city went into administration.
Peter having excellent knowledge of the industry saw that silver plating was still an industry that could thrive and decided to use his savings to start his own plating company. He is now probably one of the only independent silver platers in the city.
The company has two managing directors a husband and wife team Peter & Sue Ledger. We have some excellent staff including Claire our warehouse manager who again has many years of experience in warehousing and Emma (Pete’s Daughter) who is here to complete the Lacquering of the Knife blades and administration tasks for the company but also to look into ways we can continue to thrive for many years to come.
The Ledger family are very proud of their heritage coming from a family who have worked in the key industries that form part of the steel city’s legacy. Peter’s father worked within the steel works and Sue’s mother worked in many elements of the cutlery industry including being a buffer girl. They use this enthusiasm for Sheffield and its history to bring this to life in every element of their work and pride themselves on providing an excellent service and end product using traditional methods.
