We often tell people that we own our own factory in London, England in which we manufacture nearly all of the products we sell. Their reaction is normally along the lines of "Oh that’s really good". It is not until they come to visit us and we give them a guided tour that they end up saying
"WOW, you really make all of this stuff in London!"
We are very proud of the fact that we are one of a dwindling number of companies that actually manufacture anything in the UK. We have hot forges, grinders, presses, injection moulding machines, welders, sewing machines, an electronics department, R&D department, warehouse, dispatch, shop and offices all in one place! We try hard to outsource as little as possible, this direct contact with our products at each stage of manufacturing process gives us two big advantages over the competition. Firstly, we can keep an eye on production at every stage meaning our quality control is second to none. Secondly, we have direct access to tools and machinery which enable us to design and develop new products all of the time. We were named in James Fielding’s book "Made in Great Britain" as one of the top 75 quintessentially British companies.

Leon Paul was established in 1921 and are the only fencing company run by Olympic fencers! The knowledge we have of real fencing means that we understand what is needed and what can be improved to make fencing better. Leon Paul has designed more ground breaking fencing products than any other company.
Even though Leon Paul is a relatively small business we still recognise our responsibility to the environment and strive to reduce our environmental impact. We have been working on three key areas, these are: Packaging, Energy Consumption and Social Responsibility. All our boxes are made from recycled cardboard and a majority of our clothing is now packaged in plastic bags that are made from recycled material.
Leon Paul run one of the only automated forges in the world, but the processes of heating steel to the required forging temperature uses large amounts of power. Excess heat from the machines is removed using water cooling. This water is then used to heat the building. When we do have to outsource production we strive to ensure that we never import or buy goods that have been produced in unethical ways.
Why Leon Paul? Confidence and security with internet shopping is vital and that's why Leon Paul has devoted a lot of time and effort to developing a site which is not only detailed and helpful but secure. With over 35,000 successful orders completed since 2002 Leon Paul is by far the most used On-line fencing store on the net. Over 300 people visit the site a day to browse through the 815 products. We Know that when you order your fencing goods you want them to arrive fast. That's why we deliver our internet orders, on average within 3 days and with half of our orders being international you can get the best faster.
