William Wright is a master cutler and manufacturers of luxury cutlery and silverware for the hospitality industry. Our customers are based in over 60 countries and we have an outstanding reputation for quality products.
William Wright was born in 1916 and served in Burma (now Myanmar) during the second world war. When the war ended, William was transferred to occupied Germany where he served for a further two years. Upon his return to Sheffield, he went to work with his mother, Beatrice, in the cutlery industry. Beatrice later became the oldest ‘buffer girl’ in Sheffield and finally retired at the age of 85 after 72 years of service!
William died in 1987 and his youngest son, Stephen Wright, inherited the business. Stephen is still the current director and he has used his vast experience to assemble a highly skilled team to service some of the leading names in the hospitality industry.
