We took a tour of the Newbridge Silverware factory to learn how they make their wares

The Kildare-based company has been making products since 1934 when it was known as The Newbridge Cutlery Co.


NEWBRIDGE SILVERWARE in Co Kildare is opening up its factory for a behind-the-scenes look at how the jewellery and cutlery is created.

The tour will take visitors through the history of the factory’s foundation in 1934 and tell the stories of the generations of craftsmen that have worked there.

We took our own tour of the facility and spoke to maintenance manager Lorcan Harney about how his team create the items.

“I get great satisfaction from keeping the older machines going,” he says. “Keeping them making products that they made 50, 60 years ago that they still make today.”
