In a move that reaffirms its commitment to supporting the construction, automotive, industrial and agriculture markets with advanced cold rolled steel technology, both in the UK and internationally, Hadley Group has announced the acquisition of EWS (Manufacturing).  Since it first established in 1964, Hadley Group has consistently raised the bar in innovative steel solutions with real world applications. The company’s expertise, market insight and manufacturing capabilities have positioned it as a world leader in advanced cold rolled steel technology. EWS produces in excess of 25 million metres of cold rollformed sections annually at its manufacturing site in Wolverhampton. It is recognised as the market leader in Window and Door Steel Reinforcement and also has core strengths in other construction market products. The manufacturer will now form part of Hadley Group’s global chain of manufacturing locations, complementing the company’s growing reach.

Stewart Towe (pictured), CEO of Hadley Group, commented: “I am delighted to confirm the addition of EWS into the Hadley Group.  The company greatly complements our wide range of value added construction products. We look forward to supporting EWS as they continue to progress in the markets they serve.  “With the support of the wider Hadley Group, EWS will continue to operate as usual with no changes to the manufacturing or delivery aspects of the business.
