Crown Nail Company has been trading Cut Tacks and specialist nails for over 140 years.

Company Profile

Based in Wolverhampton, the Crown Nail Company has moved from being a manufacturer to a distributor of Cut Tacks and Nails. For over 140 years, the company made all its tacks on site using machines built in the factory.

The company has been owned by one of the oldest British nail making families, the Somervilles, since 1953. Originally, Scottish nail makers, the family moved to Wolverhampton after purchasing the company from the founders, the Lloyd family.

The company ceased UK production in December 2004 and now sources all its tacks and nails from abroad.
