About Leon Paul London


Made in London
We often tell people that we own our own factory in London, England in which we manufacture nearly all of the products we sell. Their reaction is normally along the lines of "Oh that’s really good". It is not until they come to visit us and we give them a guided tour that they end up saying

"WOW, you really make all of this stuff in London!"

We are very proud of the fact that we are one of a dwindling number of companies that actually manufacture anything in the UK. We have hot forges, grinders, presses, injection moulding machines, welders, sewing machines, an electronics department, R&D department, warehouse, dispatch, shop and offices all in one place! We try hard to outsource as little as possible, this direct contact with our products at each stage of manufacturing process gives us two big advantages over the competition. Firstly, we can keep an eye on production at every stage meaning our quality control is second to none. Secondly, we have direct access to tools and machinery which enable us to design and develop new products all of the time. We were named in James Fielding’s book "Made in Great Britain" as one of the top 75 quintessentially British companies.
