A Black Country manufacturer has bolstered its senior team with three promotions as it looks to maximise the benefits of a recent £3 million investment.
Brierley Hill-based Alloy Wire International, which is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year, has promoted Tom Mander, Andrew Du Plessis and Adam Shaw to managing director designate, technical director and finance director respectively.
The company makes round, flat and profile wire and has recently invested £3 million in material, new drawing machines, spooling equipment and factory improvements.

Alloy Wire International has remained open throughout the pandemic, supplying wire to customers supporting the building of Nightingale Hospitals and other covid-19 efforts across the world.
Its core work sees it supplying more than 5,000 customers involved in automotive, aerospace, defence, medical, nuclear, oil and gas and renewables.
Managing director Mark Venables said: “It is vital that we have a succession plan in place well in advance so we can build on recent growth and take advantage of new opportunities in both the UK and overseas.
“In Tom, Andrew and Adam, we have three experienced professionals who are hungry to carry on the Allow Wire journey and have fantastic skills in their specialist areas of sales, business strategy, finance and technical and quality.
“They will continue to learn from the three existing directors and also be encouraged to bring their own ideas and vision to the table.
“This is an exciting development for the business and one I hope that all of our staff, partners and customers will support.”
