Impressive growth story

Metelec’s Managing Director, Kevin Draper, expressed his immense pride in the team’s achievement. He highlighted the past year’s significant milestones, including the expansion into new Irish premises and the relocation to a multi-million-pound headquarters in Featherstone.

“This award is a huge recognition for what our team has been doing,” said Kevin. “They’ve been absolutely superb through the move and instrumental in keeping us on this growth path.”

Innovation at heart of success
