Trimetals are delighted to have been named winner of the Family Business Award at the Dorset Business Awards 2016.

Organised by Dorset Chamber of Commerce and Industry and also supported by Wave 105, the Dorset Business Awards have become the largest of its type in the county. The Awards evening was a fantastic opportunity to celebrate all that is great about Dorset and recognise the achievements of some of its leading businesses, both large and small, that are doing outstanding work. Winners were announced at the gala dinner awards ceremony held at the BIC on the 24th November 2016.

Ben Smith from Trimetals said “I wish to sincerely thank all members of our staff for their valued contribution which has made it possible for us to win this prestigious award. It has been a significant year for Trimetals winning both a Queens Award and the Dorset Family Business Award. Next year we celebrate our 50th anniversary; we hope that this achievement in conjunction with our recent highly prestigious awards will stimulate further business growth and also inspire future generations to keep pushing our company onwards and upwards.”

The Family Business Award was sponsored and judged by PKF Francis Clark. Head judge Nick Love, said: “Every product that Trimetals ship is made entirely by its team in Dorset and utilises British steel in the manufacturing process, something they are very committed to.  With high quality customer service a priority, the company continues to look for new and innovative ways to enhance its product range and customer base whilst retaining true family values and service.”
