Today Durston Tools is the world’s number 1 manufacturer of Rolling Mills & Tools for the Jewellery Industry. Our products are available in over 50 countries, and we work with over 250 of the best jewellery industry dealerships around the world.

Starting in the 1970s

Durston Rolling Mills was established in 1974 by William Durston with support from his father Christopher Durston. Initially focusing solely on designing and manufacturing Rolling Mills and then expanding to a wide range of metal forming tools for the Jewellery Industry.

Durston products were almost immediately well received in the USA, and they soon started offering their products through recognised dealers around the world.
