A billion metres of this group’s patented cold-rolled steel are produced every year from nine global manufacturing plants. Its steel frames, which it says are stronger, lighter, and made with fewer raw materials than traditional products, are used in construction. It also works with car manufacturers such as Jaguar Land Rover and Porsche to engineer new applications. The West Midlands business is led by father-and-son team Stewart and Ben Towe, 66 and 38. Exports to Europe and the Middle and Far East hit £45.8m last year.
