Established 1947

Founded in 1947 by Sydney Schreiber, Kaymet is a manufacturer of anodized aluminum trays and trolleys. During the second world war Schreiber owned a small metalworking business that made boxes for radars and other equipment, but after the war he needed to find a peacetime use for his machinery. In the 1950s the company flourished, equipping the Royal Family and other upper class households with trays and trolleys for their afternoon tea.

Over the years, trends and fashion have changed, but Kaymet has been loyal to its design and manufacturing. The sleek, and classic design appeals to all who are after minimalism and functionality. Sydney’s son, Ken Schreiber, recently teamed up with architect Mark Brearley. Together they relaunched the company with a new line of coloured trays and trolleys for homes and offices.
