About Us


M.A Polishing is family run business specialising in metal polishing & bronze patination  consisting of one Director Mr Paul Subhan.

“I first set the business up in 1995 with the help of my father and my brother Mark, also close friend and collegue Dennis Hillier”.

My father and Den first learned the art of metal polishing at Walter Rowleys an old Birmingham based company specialising in manufacturing architectural hardware in 1959. The company later changed to Newman Tonks. I joined them in 1986 where they passed on the skills that they had mastered over a life time.
