Arford Steel Profiles has been established in the heart of the Black Country for more than 20 years, specialising in Flame Cut and Plasma Cut steel profiles.
In 2006, it was taken over by the company's former commercial director Diane Kimberley, who has been in the steel industry for 35 years.
Arford have enjoyed sustainable growth since then, staying ahead of the game through a combination of profiling experience and new technology.
The management team has a total of more than 90 years of experience in the steel trade - and the workforce has more than 120 years of profiling knowledge.
This depth of experience, combined with investment in the latest machinery, has helped the company to build a long-standing reputation within the industry, serving the needs of clients including machinist fabricators, pipe and vessel manufacturers and geotechnical companies.
Owner and managing director Diane has been a woman of steel since she was 18.
After gaining industry experience for various companies in the Black Country area, she became commercial director here at Arford Steel Profiles in the late 1990s, before buying the business in 2006.
Diane has since overseen a substantial increase in turnover, offering clients the stability and reassurance of dealing with a successful business which puts customer service at the heart of its operations.
Chris has spent all of his working life within precision engineering.
A career stretching back more than 30 years has taken him from the shop floor to the position of Arford Steel Profile's company director.
This sheer depth of experience gives Chris the ability to visualise a finished product from simple drawings - and the drive to see each order through to the end. He's also a motorcycle fiend.
Sales and account manager Adrian has widespread industrial experience and has been working in the steel sector for 25 years.
He has an extensive record in customer service, a cornerstone of Arford Steel Profiles' business, and has an eclectic/eccentric taste in heavy rock music.
Arford's works manager is the go-to guy who makes the magic happen.
His organisational skills and unremitting good humour are fundamental to the company's operation.
And he still manages to play football at weekends.
