Union Electric Steel UK is pleased to announce that it has been awarded its second consecutive Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the International Trade category. This award is in recognition of its export achievements over the last three years. Despite the recession and tough market conditions, the company has managed to grow sales year on year with export sales now accounting for 85% of the company’s total business and its products being sold to 40 countries worldwide.

Mr. Steve Bell, Managing Director of the company, said: “We believe that this award is recognition of the quality of our products and the dedication and skills of our workforce. Our greatest strength is our people and their dedication to excellence. They have a tremendous work ethic and are committed to supplying the highest valued product to our customers.”

UES UK is a subsidiary company of Union Electric Steel Corporation headquartered in Carnegie, Pennsylvania, USA.
