Metallisation Wins Business Of The Year Award

Metallisation, the global leader in metal spraying, has scooped the ‘Business Of The Year’ title in the Chartered Institute of Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), West Midlands awards.

Metallisation Ltd was anonymously nominated to the ICAEW Panel. The nominees were then voted for by members of the ICAEW in an online vote. The award was given to the business that has achieved the most in the past twelve months and where a chartered accountant plays a leading role. Consideration was not only given to financial performance but also to staff training and care, service to clients and innovative approaches to business.

The name Metallisation has been synonymous with surface coatings since 1922. From its beginnings as a company providing an answer to corrosion problems on structural steelwork, Metallisation has developed into an expert in the technology of surface coatings. It produces world- renowned metal spraying equipment, including Arcspray, Flamespray, Plasma, HVOF and Automated Spraying Systems.

Metallisation employs a growing workforce, currently of 35 people, at its factory in Dudley, West Midlands and is represented around the world by a network of agents and distributors, who assist clients with their equipment, material and technical requirements.

In recent years, Metallisation has grown the business both nationally and internationally, and now has in excess of 75 per cent of its business overseas. Innovative product development, understanding its customers’ needs, and responding to them promptly and efficiently, have been key to this growth.

Commenting on the award, Terry Lester, Managing Director at Metallisation, says: “I am thrilled the work of everyone at Metallisation has been recognised and we have been rewarded with the prestigious Business Of The Year title. We are committed to developing new thermal spraying equipment and surface coating solutions, and providing exceptional service to our customers throughout the world.”
