Commitment to Quality

Quality, service and reliability have always been our guiding principles. Our commitment to our customers – while supplying traditional automotive, engineering and oil & gas industries and opening new markets in the medical and aerospace sectors – has secured our place at the forefront of the UK spring wire industry.
 
In 2018 we achieved the prestigious prEN9120:2016 certification (technically equivalent to AS9120B and SJAC9120A) – recognised around the world as an assurance of operational and product quality in the closely-regulated aeronautical industry – to add to our existing quality accreditation, ISO9001:2015.




A Reputation to be Proud of

We’ve won a reputation for attention to detail, for supplying the highest quality as standard, for our competitive pricing, and for stocking a range of specifications, material sizes and packaging types unsurpassed in the UK.

And we’ll stand by that reputation, whether you’re ordering 1 kilogram of spring wire, or 10,000!
