We were honoured to welcome the Mayor of Dudley to our premises on 15/1/13. The visit arranged by the Black Country Chamber of Commerse continues the Mayors interest in traditional SME businesses.
Originally from an engineering background Cllr Mottram was keen to see how metal is received processed and then despatched from our Brierley Hill site. He was pleased to hear how much of the metal that leaves us heads directly to local foundries.
He was shown how the metal we buy is received through our new MetalTrack computer system; which keeps us legal since the new scrap metal laws passed late 2012. Paul Long from Metaltrack was on hand to explain how his company collaborated with Mason's to design and programme the system. They have marketed the software and have 20 scrap metal businesses now using the Metaltrack system - processing nearly £3 million worth of turnover since December 2012. Again a local success story as Metaltracks parent company Iceblue are based in Cradley Heath.
We had a very positive chat with the Mayor after the site tour about our business and opinions regarding the future - we look forward to him visiting again!
