Accles & Pollock, the precision metal tubular assembly business which is part of Sanjeev Gupta’s GFG Alliance, has won the International Trade category in the prestigious Queen’s Awards for Enterprise 2020.
The Oldbury-based firm won the award for growth in exports that doubled over two years to £4.7m in 2018/19. Accles & Pollock specializes in high-spec components for aerospace engines, nuclear submarines, and land-based power generation.
The increase in exports was a response to key customers such as Rolls-Royce extending their manufacturing presence across the globe. More than half of Accles and Pollock’s sales now come from overseas markets spanning Singapore, USA, Canada, France, and Germany.
Accles & Pollock, which employs 50 people, is a manufacturer of rigid and flexible pipes, aerospace ducts and tube coils for high integrity applications across the aerospace, medical, nuclear, scientific, and oil and gas sectors.
