Armac have been in business since 1929.
Martin have been in business since 1950.
(And our engineering division Brass Turned Parts, since 1918) www.brassturnedparts.co.uk/
In total that is 236 years of being in business for the three divisions that are now housed together at the Armac Brassworks in Duddeston, Birmingham. In a very simplistic and historical sense, Brass Turned Parts make the parts, Armac then dress, assemble, and finish the parts, and finally Martin stock, sell and distribute the parts.
In addition to that Armac has its’ own foundry source for sand-castings, has its’ own internal press shop for pressed plates etc, and also lays down forging tools for Hot Brass Stampings.
Today (well, since 2004 to be precise!) we have moved to a purpose built factory unit in Duddeston, Birmingham. In that time the boundary lines between the different businesses have blurred and customers have crossed over between divisions. Our methods of manufacturing have modernised and streamlined to make us a far more efficient manufacturer/distributor of furniture components and ancillary brass products. And these components and products are used in a wide variety of market places both here in the UK and abroad internationally. Today we are a truly global business.
Recent investments in our design capabilities have included CAD drawing software and CAD engineering as well as Laser Engraving machines. We have also invested in a Rapid Prototyping Machine that we use to create hand-held samples of our new designs. This is a service used by our customers, who are seeking some individuality in their fittings, to add a level of exclusivity to their furniture and building designs.
The re-brand of 2011/12 neatly draws the divisions together under one banner and makes the statement that we are now fully united and ready to develop our business and by that of our customers, well into this post-financial recession era of flexibility, adaptability, integrity and sustainability.
ARMAC MARTIN is merely the name we have given to our mission plan for the future.
