Upcoming 30 Year anniversary
2022 will be A&T Enclosures’ 30th year in business! This is a significant milestone for the company having started in 1992 with only eight employees. Fast forward to today and we now employ over sixty members of staff, operating out of a 50,000 sq. ft facility with a list of prestigious companies from all over the country that we are privileged to call clients.
As you might expect, preparations are already underway to celebrate this momentous occasion on the 1st June next year and we are very excited to share this special occasion with all of our employees, clients and friends of A&T Enclosures.
Founded by our current chairman Tim King and his brother Andy, his business partner at the time, A&T Enclosures started trading from a smaller premises on Gibbons industrial estate in Pensnett on Monday 1st June 1992.
In 1996 they purchased the companies first CNC & press break machines, both of which were second hand yet still a considerable investment at the time. Hard to believe when you consider the state-of-the-art equipment that is utilised by the company today.
By 2001 the company had already seen significant growth and as a result needed to move to a bigger premises it was at this point with Tim King now being the Sole proprietor the business moved its operation to Peartree Lane in Dudley.
Between 2010 and 2020 A&T experienced significant growth thanks to a substantial investment and a 40% increase in new business, including a six-figure order from a client in the renewable energy sector. In 2011 we introduced testing to a new BS61439 standard enhancing our reputation for quality electrical enclosures which we are now renowned for. In 2015 the company moved to its current home on Pedmore Road in Brierley Hill, a 50,000 sq. ft facility housing state of the art equipment.
Next year, being the companies 30th year in business we want to celebrate all of the wonderful achievements over the years not least having survived the economic crash of 2008 and the COVID-19 pandemic!
As the industry has evolved and the needs of our customers have changed, we have done an exceptional job of adapting the business to meet these ever-changing requirements. This achievement is greatly attributed to the hard work and loyalty of our staff, some of whom have been with us from the very beginning! Over the years we have established a reputation as an engineering led organisation and we are extremely grateful to have such knowledgeable professionals working within our team.
We have many exciting plans to commemorate this milestone and you can read all about them in the lead up to and during our 30th anniversary celebrations.
