    A Birmingham silverware manufacturer identified for its outstanding business potential has graduated from the prestigious Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses programme.Heritage Silverware, founded in Small Heath more than 35 years ago, was one of only 25 Midlands companies chosen from a shortlist of more than 40 applications to take part in the four month business growth programme delivered by Aston Business School (in Birmingham).

    Renowned for its exquisite craftsmanship combining traditional skills with modern technology, the family run business was originally set up by entrepreneur Martin McDonagh who continues to run the firm with his son Anthony.

    Anthony said “We have been in business for 35 years so it is a real privilege to have been selected to take part in this initiative. The support the programme offers will be a huge boost to the future success of the company and its employees.”

    Professor Mark Hart, Programme Director said: “We were very impressed with Heritage Silverware’s ambitious business growth plans and we are delighted to have worked with such a dynamic and entrepreneurial small family business here in the Midlands.”

    10,000 Small Businesses UK is an initiative to unlock the growth and job creation potential of small businesses and is funded by Goldman Sachs and the Goldman Sachs Foundation.

    Earlier this year Heritage Silverware was commissioned to produce more than 100 bespoke items for a prestigious Bocuse d’Or culinary competition in Lyon, France and counts London’s exclusive Ritz and Dorchester Hotels as well as the Orient Express amongst its clients for products ranging from cutlery to carving trolleys and cake stands.
