Bill Graham retires from AWI

Alloy Wire International’s Bill Graham will retire this month after what has been a roller-coaster career with the world’s leading manufacturer of round, flat and profile wire, a career that saw him start as a maintenance engineer before leading an MBO, overseeing a sale and then bringing the company back into his ownership.

The former Machine Tool Engineering apprentice was also instrumental in growing the firm’s international presence, travelling the globe to build export sales from nothing to over half of its annual turnover.

He has been Chairman for the last nine years, providing strategic guidance on growth opportunities, industry developments and supporting the management team in the firm’s rapid expansion from BGP 8m in 2013 to GBP 13m at the start of 2022.

Bill has enjoyed many achievements during his time at Alloy Wire International, especially the moment when he implemented his lifelong dream of introducing employee ownership and profit sharing for every member of staff.
