Albion Jewellery invests in new equipment to meet demand

Jewellery manufacturer Albion Jewellery has invested in new machinery to meet increasing levels of demand.

The Hatton Garden based company has purchased state of the art Japanese platinum and gold casting machinery in an effort to speed up production while maintaining the required quality of the finished product.

Established in 2009, Albion Jewellery was originally founded to produce handmade jewellery. Due to high levels of demand, producing the required volumes became a strain on the expanding workforce. The company now hopes that the new investment will assist the workforce while maintaining its handmade production.

Albion’s computer aided design department now consists of three full time staff and a separate team of six jewellers, each hand-carving hard wax. Albion Jewellery believes this will reduce production costs as well as the overall cost to the retailer.

Stephen Kopaloff UK manager for Albion explained: “UK jewellers seem to want far higher quality than ever, gone are the days where porosity and poorly soldered jewellery are acceptable in the trade”.

The Albion team now consists of 65 factory staff with two staff members based in its London office producing in excess of 250 pieces per week.
