The West Yorkshire-based Metal Store has invested £700,000 in new technology, machinery, vehicles and shelving systems to support its growth.

The company began operations in 2011 and now employs 39 people in its 50,000 square foot Cleckheaton office, machining and distribution facilities, multi-million pound turnover.

Its customers include global automakers, construction and engineering companies, professional football clubs, universities and performance venues.

As part of its investment, The Metal Store has acquired two straight cutting Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machines for high production cutting of steel tubing.

It purchased industrial stretch wrappers, semi-automatic wrappers, automatic strapping machines and a press brake to bend sheet metal.

The company has also invested in three large flatbed vehicles to transport deliveries and new shelving systems to create additional storage space and improve lead times.

Andy Buckley, Founder and Managing Director of The Metal Store, said: “We have enjoyed a period of sustained growth which has been expertly led by the great team we have here at The Metal Store.

“Our £700,000 investment in technology, machinery, vehicles and shelving allows us to maintain momentum by further improving our service to our customers.

“Having the latest technology in our shop has increased our capacity, speed and efficiency to ensure that we continue to expand our excellent product and customer service experience nationwide.”
