A billion metres of this group’s patented cold-rolled steel are produced every year from seven global manufacturing plants. Its steel frames, which it says are stronger, lighter and made with fewer raw materials than traditional products, are used in the construction of new buildings. It is also working with car manufacturers such as Jaguar Land Rover and Porsche to engineer new applications for its technology. The West Midlands business is led by father-and- son team Stewart, 66, and Ben Towe, 37. In 2015, it acquired Dutch manufacturer Overeem in an undisclosed deal.
