Managing Director Chris Emes explains the highly succesful Mechatherm International business model and calls for the UK to stay in the European Union

West Midlands based Mechatherm International design and build furnaces and handling gear largely for the aluminium recycling industry. The firm has won the Queen's Award for Enterprise three times; 1996, 2001 and 2013.

The Queen's Award recognises achievements in business growth and exporting. Around 99% of Mechatherm’s business comes from countries outside the UK, including, in recent years, Germany, Venezuela, USA and China. Mechatherm employs around 70 people and has an annual turnover of nearly £20 million.
