A national manufacturer of architectural panels is hoping to expand into global markets with support from the Sheffield Enterprise Programme.
E.E. Ingleton Engineering, based in Sheffield, produces perforated panels for architectural metalwork, such as staircases and industrial screens.
Recent contracts have included Heathrow Airport and London’s Docklands Railway. The company also manufactures swing hammers and wear parts for a number of major UK recyclers and material processors, including power generation plants.
Ingleton Engineering now aims to replicate its UK success abroad and is preparing to export its products to businesses around the world.
Terry Lee, operations director at Ingleton Engineering, said: “Most of our products are in niche markets and we’ve secured the greatest part of the UK consumption of some of these products, working with a number of major users.
“Whilst we are developing a good level of industrial screen business in mainland Europe through our Dutch based partner, we want to increase this significantly and also sell into other business areas and around the world. If we can do it successfully in the UK, then we can do it internationally.
“The Sheffield Enterprise Programme is helping us to overcome these barriers by providing assistance with attendance at international exhibitions, trade missions and research into new markets.”
