Wolverhampton specialist fastenings manufacturer BST Supplies has a new management team in place after seeing turnover more than double in three years.
During the period staff numbers have soared from around 50 to 90 as sales have broken the £10 million barrier.
Now the firm, under a new management team, is on a recruitment drive again and looking to take the business to new heights.
James Mee has taken over from his father Stuart as managing director and been joined by financial director Paul Adams. An operations director to complete the management trio is due to be announced shortly.
The business was founded 24 years ago by Stuart Mee and co-director Tony Lawless who have now taken a non-executive role on the board.
BST Supplies manufactures precision special fasteners, threaded and machined components, often in small to medium or prototype-sized batches. The majority of components are manufactured in materials that are corrosion and/or heat resistant and may be required to be chemical resistant with many being safety or life-critical.
The firm supplies the petrochemical, nuclear and naval industries and government bodies and major clients are increasingly requiring their suppliers to meet tough environmental standards.
But James Mee is keen to keep pushing the business hard and build on the foundations laid by his father and Mr Lawless.
“We are constantly examining what we do and how we do it, and to that end we recently incorporated a new mechanical testing facility on site – something we used to sub-contract.
