Metal for Design & Architecture

Cadisch MDA is a close knit team of professionals with a shared passion for metals and their finishes for use within the built environment. With a keen eye on product development and innovation we are always pushing the boundaries of what can be done with metal.

Meet the Team

Anthony Millington

Managing Director

About Anthony Millington

I run the show, so I get involved in all sorts from sales, marketing and product development (including finishes) …and making the tea.

Before I set up Cadisch MDA in 2002 with my business partner Simon, I started out in the family builder’s merchants in Leicester. I was 14 at the time (not sure if that’s legal) and I’d work during the Summer holidays.

But my first spark of interest in architecture was back when I was a boy skateboarding steps, walls, rails and anything else I could get my board on. Everything got scrutinised as a potential ramp or surface to skate and it made me question ‘why on earth has someone designed it that way?’ I’d go as far to say that skateboarders are more aware of architecture, both as a playground and as a creative medium, than almost anyone else.

Selin Roberts

Operations Manager

About Selin Roberts

I tend to work on a bit of everything from project management, logistics, purchasing, cash flow, CAD drawings and supporting the office team to get through life in general.

I’ve worked in the construction and architectural industry for 13 years and have a BA Honours in Architectural Interior Design and Space Planning. The first project I completed at Cadisch MDA was the Royal College of Arts and I learnt a lot from it. Since then I have taken on projects for the likes of Harrods and supplied materials for many buildings that have gone on to be nominated (and won)  architectural awards. But one of the things I love most about the job is being able to work with my friends.

Now, I’m working on drawing and re-designing my own house, but my aim is to one day buy a Huf Haus. These are still my favourite from when I worked on them 13 years ago (sorry Cadisch MDA, no metal involved). 

Simon Cadisch

Chairman of the Cadisch Group

About Simon Cadisch

I co-founded Cadisch MDA with Anthony, so like him I have been here since the beginning.

In the early days I helped with the development of the product range, drawing upon my experience of wire weaving, metal expanding and perforating. Today, I act as Chairman to the wider Cadisch Group, which encompasses the supply of filtration, screen printing and LED lighting products that are distributed throughout the world.

With my 35 years experience in the precision metals industry, I keep a keen interest in the development of Cadisch MDA, mainly because I am so passionate about the company.

I was delighted to be involved with the build of the new corporate HQ that has provided us with a wonderful opportunity to incorporate lots of our products. If you need inspiration or design ideas then come and pay us a visit!

Hannah Archer

Sales Executive for Interior Projects

About Hannah Archer

I manage interior design projects and pretty much anything else that needs doing…logistics, credit control and general production-butt-kicker.

I’ve been in the job for three years now and still find that no two days are the same. And it all started from my love of shiny, pretty things.

I’m quite girly in that way; I have always loved beautiful things and I own my own horse, but then I am also never afraid to get stuck in and get my hands dirty when I need to. 

Philip Antoniadis


About Philip Antoniadis

I am here to help contractors, architects and designers better understand our product applications and provide costings for projects that are mutually beneficial for us and our clients.

I’ve been working as an Estimator in the construction industry for nearly three years and in that time I’ve yet to come across any two projects that are the same - which is great because it makes my job much more enjoyable.

In my past time I love my cars and gadgets (anything that gets my mechanical senses tingling). I guess that’s where my interest in the construction industry comes from.

Kate Robinson

Marketing Manager

About Kate Robinson

I take care of the marketing for Cadisch MDA (all the fun stuff) and have been working in the built environment for the past 7 years. I also work with Cadisch MDA’s sister company Ecoled, who specialise in architectural lighting.

It makes my job easier when I get to work with a team who have so much energy and passion about what they do; my only challenge is making sure that I translate this energy into the brand.

I love design and creativity, but I am also a sucker for a spreadsheet and analysing data. And again, in true Gemini style my personality is split between being quite feminine in my style and taste, but at the weekend I'm all about the mud, sweat and gears; I'm either racing my motorcross bikes or riding out on my Fireblade - I’m all about sparkles and sprockets.

Corrina Ashman


About Corrina Ashman

I am the company accountant at Cadisch MDA, where I manage credit control, purchase ledger, sales ledger and management accounts for the business.

I’ve been working in the industry for the past four years and currently studying to become further qualified in my field.

Outside of accounting life, I’m really into my fitness and have set up my own business called Two Minds, which sells fitness journals. I’ve even been sponsored by Cadisch to run the 2019 London Marathon and I will be raising money for our nominated charity, Together for Short Lives. 

Where we came from

The company was formed from the merger of ideas from the Cadisch Group and JS Millington and Sons Ltd.

Cadisch is a 130 year-old family business and has its roots firmly in the metal mesh industry, from the finest woven wire meshes to the heaviest perforated plate used in industrial processes. JS Millington and Sons was a 150 year old family run business based across the UK supplying all types of building materials, from basic timber to some of the rarest bricks available on the market.

The two companies came together in 2002 and formed the basis of an idea for using the metals that had originally been in the industrial domain and offering them as a finished architectural product. In time these have become accepted into the market as bespoke alternatives to traditional building materials.

What we do 

Our Meshtec® materials are one of the largest range of expanded metals from the small meshes we now associate with our bespoke suspended ceilings to the large open meshes often used on car parks and large cladding projects. In addition we also offer our extensive range of standard and custom profiled sheets (Welltec®), perforated metals (Perftec®) including our increasingly popular Picperf® – the transference of high resolution images using differing hole sizes to create any image across large facades. Our latest innovation is the laminated mesh in glass and perspex (Vitramesh®) and our specially profiled expanded meshes (Cerritec®) have been embraced by architects and designers across the world for their uniqueness and functionality.

Cadisch MDA is now one of the UK’s most respected and well known suppliers of architectural metals and meshes, supplying materials worldwide.
