Fernite new factory model

We are expanding our cutting-edge manufacturing of knives

We’ve seen a rapid growth over the last few years, and now we have outgrown our current facilities. With our product range and sharpening service expanding we are recruiting new team members. The Fernite group has now increased to include 5 main companies Fernite, A.F. Whiteley, Mastercut, BSS, and Print Blade. We manufacture bespoke and specialised products to suit customers’ specific requirements across a wide range of industries including food, print, paper, packaging, plastics, metal, and textile.

We are happy to announce work starting on our bespoke new factory. Our new £1.8 million design and build project at Dorehouse Business Park in Sheffield will give us 3,300 sq m and will include high quality production areas and modern office space.

We are delighted to represent the continuous growth of Sheffield’s heritage in the precision blade manufacturing industry. This project will offer us the opportunity to expand our high-tech manufacturing capability and thus better serve our customers. Work on the new factory started this week, and it’s due for completion later this summer. Watch our news for more updates and photos of the site!
