Jewelry machinery & expert required


#1

Hi!

Happy Monday to all! Hope you all are doing great!

Let me introduce myself, my name is Mariya Suhail. I am running Pakistan’s 1st commercial Lapidary in Lahore city. We started in 2012 and now have 2 units where we are processing Precious & Semi-precious gemstones.

We would now like to setup a jewelry manufacturing unit, a medium sized one ( i know that is a relative term :slight_smile: Silver, 14 & 18k gold.

I am looking into few companies I met at Bangkok Gems& Jewelry exhibition. Different models of casting machines and oven etc

We are open to companies around the world. Can anyone suggest a company which is able to provide a complete range of jewelry making machinery? We will be working in silver plus 14k gold. For rhodium and gold plating I have short listed a company in Thailand but open to suggestions.

One of the main requirements is to have an expert come over to not just setup the unit but stay for minimum 4 months to train the local workforce. From my earlier experience, we had an Sri Lankan expert stay in Lahore for 7 months to train the workforce and it made a lot of difference. Is there any jewelry expert on this forum who had the experience of setting up and training the workforce for few months? Can you please get in touch with me on stones.beads@gmail.com or my linkedin account https://www.linkedin.com/in/mariya-suhail-1916b619 .

Look forward to hearing from you guys!

Hi Mariya,
I recommend that you contact Tim Mcreight. He has a charity that has been setting up jewelers in Africa. The group is known as the Toolbox initiative. They have YouTube videos. http://www.toolboxinitiative.org/
