Multi strand blanking, coil fed blanking presses, laser welded blanks facility, a customer integrated distribution centre and an ultra-high strength slitting line. Innovation has always been at the forefront of the business.

Since processing of steel started in the late 1960’s, the company has always been located in West Bromwich, where it currently occupies Trafalgar Works a 200,000 sq.ft factory. The company has grown considerably over the last 20 years, and now occupies 5 sites in the U.K.; West Bromwich, Smethwick, Cannock, Darlaston in the West Midlands and Newton Aycliffe in County Durham.
