Established in 1970, our Mayfield engineers have perfected the craft of making precision Bell Lyres, Glockenspiels, Metallophones, and Chimes.


Supporting Young People Into Work 

Research shows over 70% of people with autism and learning disabilities want to work,
however only 16% of people with autism 
are in meaningful employment.

We offer vocational work placements at our engineering workshop in
Sheffield for young adults who have autism,
learning disabilities and associated conditions.

Our talented team pride themselves on being part of the
journey to improve those statistics, we are proud to offer support
that enables people to achieve more than they thought was possible.

The inspiring staff at Mayfield instil confidence and encourage our trainees to use machines and tools, and teach valuable life skills needed for the world of work.
