About Our Company

Anthony Peters Manufacturing Co Ltd was established 25 years ago and is based in Melton Mowbray England. Over the past 23 years we have built up a range of children’s art and craft educational products including stencils, cutters and children’s gardening tools.

In addition to our UK base in Melton, we also have a wholly owned manufacturing factory in Ningbo China which opened in 2005. This gives us great flexibility to develop and adapt bespoke products for our customers as Own Label, Third Party Manufactured or simply in large quantities.

Our Location

Our UK premises are located in Melton Mowbray, England; a Medieval Leicestershire Market Town in the East Midlands. Melton is also home of the world-famous Pork Pie and Stilton Cheese.

Our wholly owned factory opened in 2005 and is located in Ningbo, a Chinese sea port city. Ningbo is home to the Tianyi Pavilion Museum, China’s oldest surviving library.
