News: Kiveton Park Steel presented with Queen's Award for Enterprise


David Moody, the Lord Lieutenant of South Yorkshire, has formally presented Rotherham's Kiveton Park Steel Limited with their Queen's Awards for Enterprise.

The quality manufacturer of bright engineering steel bar and wire won the prestigious award 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.

Fellow Rotherham metals specialist, C.F.Booth, also picked up a Queen's Award for Enterprise for International Trade for 2012 and entry is now open for the 2013 awards with the closing date of September 28 2012.

The South Yorkshire International Trade Forum (SYITF) is hosting a round table event later this month to help more local companies bid for the prestigious awards.

The event on August 8 is aimed at the exporting and manufacturing sector and will be facilitated by William Beckett, chairman of the SYITF and managing director of award-winning company, William Beckett Plastics.

Pictured at Kiveton Park Steel are Mick Jones, sales & marketing director; Geoff Blatherwick, deputy chairman; David Moody, Lord Lieutenant; Bill Collington, managing director; and Tony Maycock, chairman.
