News: Queen's Award for Kiveton Park Steel Limited


Rotherham-based, Kiveton Park Steel Limited, a quality manufacturer of bright engineering steel bar and wire, has won a prestigious Queen's Awards for Enterprise by demonstrating outstanding achievement in international trade over three years.

Established in 1922, the family company originally produced items used within the UK mining industry and also supplied specialised products into the defence and aircraft industries. It has developed its unique range of production equipment to ensure that the manufacturing facility at Dog Kennel Hill in Kiveton Park is suited to supply chain requirements for critical parts within the global automotive markets, principally supplying Tier 1 and Tier 2 companies.

The major subsidiary of Kiveton Park Holdings, which has interests in steel processing, international distribution and trading, has seen export activities increase rapidly over recent years with current levels representing over 60% of total sales, initially to European markets but now extending into many deep sea destinations including Latin and South America, India and the Far East.

The company is closely associated with the global automotive sector supplying quality products in supply chains leading to diesel injection, steering, engine and suspension parts and providing a full service package for a wide range of material specifications.

50% of markets are either new to the company in the last six years or are an existing market where new products have been introduced to new companies in those markets.

Turnover for the year ending June 2011 was up by 50% to £27m.

Bill Collington, managing director at Kiveton Park Steel, said: "The Queen's Awards for Enterprise are the most prestigious corporate awards that any UK business can win and we are extremely proud to be honoured with the award for International Trade.

"We share this award with all employees, agents and distributors working together to promote our export trade.The company is committed to continued export growth both within and beyond Europe where our key messages of, Quality – The First Priority and Excellence in Customer Service, provide the foundations for sustainable supply chain business relationships."

Fellow Rotherham metals specialist, C.F.Booth, also picked up a Queen's Award for Enterprise for International Trade for 2012.
