We had an email from s0meone interested in what the old metalbox site was used for during the 2 world wars, i got my contact to do some reasearch and this is what she found;
Thank you for visiting the Mansfield Metalbox site – we hope you liked it.
As regards your comment on the activities at the site during the two World Wars, I have enclosed an extract from a book which gives you an idea of what the factory was involved in during those times. I hope this answers your question.
Another point of interest on these pages is the reference to Charles Fletcher and his time with the company. As you will see he was the man who designed the Quality Street tin over 100 years ago and which is still used today.
With kind regards
