As we manufacture our lead on site we can size according to your specifications, although we stock standard 3m or 6m rolls we can produce to order anything up to 6m long and from 100mm to 1400mm wide. We can even roll non-standard thickness up to 6mm, meaning we can cater to almost any architect’s requirements. Our website provides quick and easy access to required data sheets and weights guide.

Environmental & Quality Policy

Lead is a 100% recyclable material making it a very sustainable and environmentally friendly product.

Lead’s comparatively low melting point and cost-effective production means that it has a lower impact on the environment than the production of other man-made synthetic lead alternatives. At Central Milled Lead we take our responsibility to the environment very seriously and our entire operation is accredited by BSI under their ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management System and is audited yearly by them.

Established in 1987 by Ronald Morgan, Morgan Athersmith and Co. was a small lead merchant reselling lead sheet, producing a range of lead fabrications and offering an on-site installation service for the local Construction industry.

Over the years with a lot of hard work the business grew and developed its product range and customer base. In the late 90’s a decision was made to introduce a new rolling mill with the idea that the company would be free from price control and would be able to produce rolled lead to service its fabrication and merchant trade counter. A gap in the market was identified and the decision was made to take the Rolled Sheet Lead to market at a national level, to coincide with this Central Milled Lead was established in 2001.

Today under the control of Cameron Morgan, Central Milled Lead has a dedicated site for rolled lead manufacture and supply as well as separate premises for the trade counter and fabrication workshop.

The company’s recent rebrand in 2019 has marked further development in the business as we move forward and look to increase our product’s availability through resellers, and direct to fabricators nationwide, while supporting our local tradesmen, installers, and fabricators as we grow.

Central Milled Lead is a much larger company than Morgan Athersmith & Co. however Central Milled Lead still stands by its core values: Customer focussed, a high-quality specified product, at the right price, when it is needed.

Continuing to manufacturing quality lead products for today's requirements, with personal service and fast delivery. Contact Central Milled Lead to see how we can help you.
