About Carrs Silver
Carrs Silver is a Sheffield manufacturer rich in the traditional silversmith skills the city is famous for and committed to strengthening its reputation in the global market for classic and contemporary luxury hotel silverware. All Carrs Silver products are made in Sheffield, and grace the homes of many who appreciate the finer things in life around the world. Established by Ron Carr in 1977, initially making silverware gifts and accessories, the family-run business has grown to become one of the UK’s premier manufacturers of fine quality silverware and the largest supplier of silver hotel cutlery blanks to many other silverware companies. The Carrs philosophy has always been to encompass new technologies and techniques whilst employing the finest of traditional hand skills. Many of the workforce are second-generation Carrs employees, and the company regularly appoints apprentices so the experienced team members can pass on their silversmith skills to a new generation.
Carrs is the only UK silverware company to manage the silver fabrication process on-site. Its experience and expertise in the processes of melting, casting, rolling and forming silver alloys is well established and gives the company an unrivalled advantage in terms of quality and delivery management. Its production processes including metal-spinning, silversmithing and buffing are still traditional and highly skilled techniques, whilst other operations have benefitted from investment in new technology. Carrs continues to research and develop innovative engineering and manufacturing processes which mean it can maintain its high product quality, while keeping costs competitive. Visitors from all over the world come to the Sheffield manufacturing site to learn more about the Carrs Silver story and to witness the journey of Carrs Silver’s luxury hotel silverware products through their many stages, from melting to final polishing.
