Sheffield Assay Office Chairman Visits Recently Opened Sub-Office in Milan

18 Jul 2014


Sheffield Assay Office Chairman, Chris Heaton, travelled to Malpensa in Milan, Italy with Assay Master, Ashley Carson, to visit the recently launched sub-office.  During his visit the Chairman met with hallmarking staff and was given a full tour of the facilities by Branch Manager, Aaron Walker (pictured above).

Assistant Production Manager, Laura Cofini, put the Chairman to good use during his visit, helping to pack articles.

When asked about the facility the Chairman commented “I was really looking forward to visiting the new branch of Sheffield Assay Office following the landmark decision taken by the British Hallmarking Council to permit us to open in Italy. The facility is excellent and I am very happy that the integrity of Sheffield Assay Office is being upheld in Malpensa”.

Malpensa, a new branch of the Sheffield Assay Office situated in Milan, opened for Hallmarking in May 2014.  The sub-office carries out the same functions as the main office at Guardians' Hall, Sheffield in the north of the UK.  Malpensa is the first ever overseas branch to be authorised by the British Hallmarking Council.
