Classic Trolleys from Kaymet in England

September 11, 2015

Back in 1947, Sydney Schreiber set out to find new uses for machinery his business had been using to fabricate parts for radios and radar equipment during WWII. Since then, his London company, Kaymet, has specialized in handmaking anodized aluminum trays, trolleys, and hot plates. “The items that emerge from our Bermondsey factory can be found in some really special households, restaurants, and hotels, as well as in plenty of yachts and airplanes,” they say.

Recently, Kaymet, under the leadership of Sydney’s son, Ken, has been “gently expanding the range, carefully tweaking our products.” We’re glad the trolleys roll on.
