  • Off to a flying start!

    Congratulations Ollie!

    Ollie was recently named as one of the new faces joining the Worcester Warriors first team for the 2018/19 season.  Ollie caught the teams eye in 2017 when he played for the team against Sale Sharks, scoring a try in his debut.  Everyone at Alcomet is really pleased for Ollie Lawrence who has made his first premiership appearance for Worcester Warriors against Exeter Chiefs in September.  The match ultimately ended in defeat for the Warriors, but was an impressive start non the less for Ollie who joined the side in the 60th minute of the game, Despite the match outcome Ollie’s premiership debut was outstanding, and heshowed excellent skill and control.

    Alcomet are really pleased for Ollie and can’t wait to see what the rest of the season has to offer.

  • On the road to success

    Alcomet are proud to help a local rising rugby star, Ollie Lawrence, get on the road tosuccess, by providing the aspiring rugby player with a car.  Ollie recently passed his driving test and Gary James, Alcomet’s Managing Director was pleased to offer his support by providing Ollie with a car that would ensure he could get to his training sessions with ease.

    Ollie has played for a number of local and county level teams, recently making his debut for Worcester Warriors first team in the Anglo-Welsh Cup against Sale Sharks and the young age of 18. Ollie has been touted as ‘one to watch’ and at the young age of 17 he has played for the England Under 18’s and Under 20’s teams this season.

    Alcomet couldn’t be happier to support the local talent and will be cheering Ollie on in the upcoming season.

  • Swift Delivery for Power Connectors

    Alcomet’s swift delivery was put to the test recently when a customer contacted us with an urgent enquiry for bespoke power connectors.

    With the appointment of our Technical Manager for Power Connectors we have been able to offer our customers an even more comprehensive service. We can now provide a material take off, bill of materials and quote within 48 hours and we will offer speedy delivery of the products to site.

    This service proved invaluable to a recent customer who contacted Alcomet when they had received the site drawings last minute. It was crucial that the Power Connectors were on site within 2 weeks in line with the completion deadline. Alcomet were able to complete the material take off, providing the customer with the bill of materials on the same day as receiving the drawings from the customer. Ultimately we delivered the materials to site within a week. Exceeding the customers’ expectations and saving the customer potential fines incurred for late completion.

  • Alcomet Reach the Finals of the Express and Star Business Awards

    Great news for us here at Alcomet, as we have recently received two nominations in the prestigious Express & Star Business Awards.

    Securing a nomination in the SME Business of the Year category, our managing director Gary James has also been selected for an individual award. Reluctant to shout about his personal nomination, Gary would argue that every business owner is only as good as the people that surround him.

    In both categories the entrant had to demonstrate innovation in products as well as a commitment to customer service and of course, sustained commercial success. We are really delighted that the Express & Star awards’ judging panel have acknowledged these facets of the business as well as our strong leadership and motivated and enthused team.

    To some, awards may be viewed as a type of corporate vanity, but we see them as an opportunity to celebrate Alcomet’s achievements in new innovations. Often it’s good to analyse your own business and more importantly get outside parties to look at it, as their opinions are impartial and unbiased so we feel the awards are a testament to getting things right.

    Product innovation is at the very heart of what we do at Alcomet. Our award award-winning Guardian Security Products range and the Triton Portable Earthing Device, we feel confirms this. With the recent launch of the Alcomet Fuse Carrier we have also been acknowledged for our agility in responding to the needs of a diverse and continuously developing market sector. None of these cutting edge solutions would have been developed without the support and loyalty of our customers and suppliers, so for this we thank them.

    We are now making sure that our dinner jackets are brushed and pressed before we step on to the Red Carpet on the 26th May. Just like the Oscars it’s deemed unlucky to prepare an acceptance speech. However win or lose, we are looking forward to celebrating everything that is great about the Midlands and especially its flourishing business community.
