Alloy Wire International has seen sales rocket by GBP 3m since the deal was completed in January, taking turnover to GBP 18m with the prospect of it breaking GBP 20m in 2024.

In fact, their progression to the next stage did not take long with a full Management Buy-Out completed in January this year.
