CMT commenced trading as the Cradley Heath Manufacturing Company back in 1907, making wrought iron fittings for the gas, water and steam industries. During the 1960’s the company became the Midland Iron and Hardware Company and in 1968 was acquired by Central Manufacturing and Trading – the reason we are still called CMT.
