Ernest Wright and Son Limited is a family owned scissors manufacturing company based in Sheffield, England – the birthplace of stainless steel.The company was established in 1902.Through the succeeding generations the company has maintained it’s excellent pedigree and is, to this day, a world-recognised name in the production of quality scissors and shears.

The full range of products, hand made in Sheffield to this day using age-old techniques and skills, covers all manner of household, kitchen, garden, industrial, craftsman, leisure and ceremonial ribbon-cutting scissors applications.

The Wright family have been involved in the boring, hardening and tempering of scissors since at least 1860. Since Walter Wright began in the scissors industry, successive generations of family have joined the trade. Ernest Wright senior (the limited company’s founder), then Ernest Wright junior, then Graham and Philip Wright (brothers) have all taken their turn to run this family business.

Nick Wright, Philip’s son, is now Managing Director, providing the 5th generation to have led the family business. Plans to modernise methods of sales and communications – though not necessarily methods of production – are already underway during his tenure.
