New Year – Old Values

Well we are already well into the start of another superb year

2017 was amazing – financially, socially and emotionally!

Lifetime achievements. Business Growth. Outstanding Team

Now what about the NEW YEAR of 2018

As Sponsors of the 2018 Welding World Awards, we are excited to be Judges, as well as Nominated and Attendees of this vital industry Award Ceremony in April.

This event pushes the boat out to promote the Welding and Fabrication industry, do something to help the skills shortage and acknowledge those that keep Welding a vital component of the UK’s industrial heritage.

Britain has been known for centuries for its quality British Steel, first class mechanical and electrical engineering, excellent manufacturing capabilities.

Our family run firm is no different.  The values of business we adopted over half a century ago are still going strong.  Maybe even more so today in a world of uncertainty and unrest.

We look forward to working with many old customers and securing friendships with new customers around the world.  With our wealth of knowledge and vast array of products this already is looking to be another exciting new year.

Wishing you Health, Wealth and Happiness for 2018

Claire Spillane, Director

Britain on the Verge

MD captured Twice

Would you believe it – many friends, customers and colleagues have spotted Peter Westerman in the BBC Article Britain on the verge: Life along the A1 written and photographed by Peter Dench.

See what you think. Peter can be seen eating his breakfast at Flo’s café a place he has frequented for many years (previously at Little Chef) as he travels around the country buying used welding equipment for our business.

BUT do you think it is him at the miniature railway station chatting up the lady over the fence? 

Those who know Peter will say yes as his colourful character is loved by all who meet him.

Click this link http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/in-pictures-42151512 and then let us know your opinion.

All work is by Peter Dench who will be exhibiting in January 2018.

Peter Westerman Gets About A Bit! Caught on the BBC Again!

Peter Westerman Has Hit the Headlines Again!

We all know Peter gets around a bit…
However on one of his latest trips, he was spotted at a popular joint of his – Flo’s cafe on the A1!
We were surprised (as was he!) to find himself in yet another BBC article this morning. Scrolling through a feature on one of Britain’s most popular roads – the A1, there popped up Peter’s picture – tucking into one of his favourites, The Great British Fry Up!

Peter regularly visits Flo’s cafe and wouldn’t dream of going anywhere else as he makes his trips up and down the A1, little did he know that that morning he would be snapped by the BBC for the privilege!

Due to the Copywright of the BBC, we can’t show you the picture on here but we would be more than happy to point you in the direction of the article, it’s an interesting read!
