Firmin & Sons are perhaps the only company left in the United Kingdom with integrated design, development and manufacture capability with all of the skills under one roof. We take a customer's design ideas and translate these into relief on a 3 dimensional metal die. this highly engineered die and tool set is used to strike a medal, badge, button or ceremonial piece. Firmin have been commissioned to manufacture both single piece and high volume following close engagement with the client and applying a diligent engineering approach.
Firmin House operates a number of specialist retail establishments. Kashket & Partners can be found in the West End of London offering the finest in traditional suiting. We are also proud to be the tailors in residence at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, The Royal Air Force College at Cranwell and at The Headquarters of Land Command in Andover. We offer a range of suiting, uniform, casual clothing, headdress and footwear for the discerning professional.
