Specialist metal storage manufacturer - Trimetals - has been recognised in this year’s Queen’s Awards thanks to its impressive export achievements.

Sales of the company's sheds and storage units for new-build and renovation projects have been increasing globally, helping the company win the prestigious Queen’s Award for International Trade. Popularity of Trimetals' PVC-clad steel units has grown steadily among home-builders, architects, and facilities managers looking for secure and durable storage.

Unlike wooden or plastic alternatives, Trimetals’ products are also fire-resistant - and certificated as such - and the company guarantees that they will not warp, become weak and brittle, crack, or discolour over time.

With no need for maintenance, units are guaranteed for 25 years and are available in various sizes to accommodate everything from garden tools and outdoor furniture, to lawnmowers and motorbikes. Smaller units are equally as accessible as larger sheds, with each featuring a unique and easy-to-use spring assisted opening action. This allows walk-in access, eliminating heavy or awkward lifting as stored items are within easy reach.

Already Europe’s leading manufacturer of quality metal garden storage buildings, Trimetals has focussed on worldwide expansion to deliver international sales growth averaging 33 percent per annum and totalling 283 percent over the last six years. Overseas trade now accounts for 18 percent of the company’s revenue.

Garry Smith, Trimetals Managing Director, said: “Our products have been gaining popularity among discerning specifiers in the UK market for some time and it’s clear that security, functionality and reliability are appreciated. It’s great to see that word of these benefits is spreading internationally with our stores now being specified as far afield as Australia and Japan.”
