International Track 200

The recent struggles of Europe’s economy have driven Ward Recycling to find customers for its metals farther afield. It exports to foundries and steelworks worldwide from its Derbyshire base and new dockside facilities in Wales, and orders from India and Asia pushed international turnover to £41.7m in 2013. Fourth-generation family members David and Michael Ward, 52 and 57 respectively, lead the business.
