The 2014/205 financial year has been one of the most dramatic and exciting for one of the region’s leading steel stock holders, AJN Steelstock.
Record steel sales have produced the highest annual turnover ever for the Suffolk-based company, which supplies prime steel to a growing customer base throughout East Anglia, the Home Counties, East Midlands and London.
During the last financial year, AJN Steelstock increased its steel sales by 21,512 tons (an increase of almost 20 per cent on the previous year) which led the company to a turnover of more than £50 million for the first time in its history.
Record setting months have inevitably put pressure on the company’s existing site facilities and AJN Steelstock has been actively looking for an additional facility from which to launch the company’s ambitious growth plans.
Earlier this year, the company announced that it had completed the purchase of a 17 acre steel stockyard in Henstridge, Somerset, and has just completed a recruitment drive to find an additional one hundred jobs. The new facility is due to open in the autumn this year.
Commenting, Courtney Bell, AJN Steelstock’s Financial Director said: “Our success is due in no small measure to the commitment we make to our customers. We are known for the reliability of the service we offer and for the outstanding levels of customer service we provide.”
In addition to its comprehensive range of steel products – the company regularly holds in excess of 15,000 tonnes in stock at any one time – AJN Steelstock also provides in-house sawing, shot-blast and painting facilities, and a state of the art CNC drilling line.
The company is currently recruiting for a number of vacancies at its purpose built Kentford site, including HGV drivers, Machinery Operators and CombiLift/Forklift truck drivers. For further information and details please visit: www.ajnsteelstock.co.uk.
