who we are

We are wonderfully passionate about tins! In the offices at Elite you will find a great array of old tins, collected over the years. There are delightful and unusual shapes which cannot be replicated today, due to their detailed hand-made construction. The collection includes many biscuit, toffee and tobacco tins, as well as a huge collection of Royal commemorative tins, some rare indeed and these serve as inspiration and go hand in hand with the great enthusiasm we have for tin ware!

Premium quality is our forte and my team and I have near 30 years of experience to offer you when it comes to customer service, product knowledge, design and manufacturing of tin ware. We take pleasure guiding and serving customers old and new.

We are a British company with a global reach and we work with the biggest brands in home design, collaborating with Emma Bridgewater, Caroline Gardner, Aga, the Royal Collection, Happy Jackson to name a few. Our products have sold in Buckingham Palace, Harrods, Liberty's, The Wallace Collection, Waitrose, Steamer Trading, Hankyu department Store, John Lewis.

My mission at Elite is to have a quality tin for everyone, whether it’s a classic, timeless design perfectly fitting for a country kitchen or a contemporary design for a modern dwelling. In recent years we have leapt forward with our modern style and specialist gifting and current times are exciting as never before in the company history has the selection of seasonal gifts, male gifting and products for a younger audience been more prevalent.

Our hugely successful AGA oven tin was a creative challenge that was two years in the making and has gone on to sell into tens of thousands and win ‘Gift of the Year’ Food filled Gift 2014, which we are immensely proud of. We have exciting ideas for future products ensuring we push the boundaries in tin production and offer you the very best that we can.
