Whiteley’s was founded in 1760 and is now the last industrial scissor-maker in the UK and the oldest scissorsmith in the Western world. William Whiteley is a leading producer of industrial and professional scissors and shears, developing cutting solutions to match the latest materials in automotive, aerospace, and many other industries. Each scissor produced by the company is still hand-made, assembled, and tested by craftsmen, using the skill and techniques honed and handed down over centuries.
