Construction & Engineering Awards 2022

Architecture Awards 2022 BUILD 33 Best Expanded Metal Products Manufacturer – UK In fact, recently, the firm was recently chosen to work with the main contractor on the second phase of the distinctive, stateof-the-art training and teaching facility in Lancing, East Sussex. As part of Albion’s continued commitment to their women’s team, the club needed to expand in order to accommodate the women’s and girl’s facility. “This high-profile project was fairly complex,” says Steve. “Our design team, with their attention to detail, meant that even on the most challenging jobs, we can be sure of a first-class finish. We designed and manufactured the bespoke copings to meet the project’s exact specifications used to enhance architectural features and provided all-weather protection.” Having also opened a facility in Scotland, Trueline is now well placed to deliver any project, anywhere in the UK, meaning a fast and efficient delivery service directly to its customers can be guaranteed. But it doesn’t stop there. Three years ago, the company invested more than £600,000 in new machinery and a new paint line to double capacity, followed by a major investment in its IT capabilities – meaning it can now provide customers with real-time updates on orders and deliveries. Plus 14001, ISO 9001 and ISO 45001 accreditation further adds to the company’s commitment to further build on its customers trust and support. Recently, Trueline was recognised for its hard work and dedication to its customers by receiving the prestigious title of Best Expanded Metal Products Manufacturer – UK in the Construction & Engineering Awards 2022, meaning that another accolade can join the existing trophy cabinet. Now, with further investment planned to focus on developing its staff, their skill sets, training, and qualifications, it seems that the world really is Trueline’s oyster. “We’ve been constantly exceeding our own expectations for growth in the fabrication industry and supporting a British supply chain,” says Steve. “But our 30 plus years of industry experience really is just the beginning!” Contact: Steve Mares Company: Trueline Expanded Products Ltd Web Address: or more than three decades, Trueline Expanded Products Ltd (Trueline) has delivered the highest quality fabrications and accessories to the construction industry across the whole of the UK, with high-quality craftsmanship, seamless communications, and product delivery all individually tailored to meet its customers exact requirements and specifications. It goes without saying, therefore, that the firm is extremely proud to be a British manufacturer and, with an ambitious and strategic growth plan, it seems that this is just the tip of the iceberg. Managing Director Steves Mares established the company with his wife Anita in Telford back in 1994, initially as a specialist producer of render beads for the construction industry. Following expansion, and a move to Kidderminster, the couple’s son, Luke Wellings, came on board and contributed to its further rapid expansion. “At Trueline, we believe that our hard working and dedicated team is key to our ever- evolving business,” explains Steve enthusiastically. “Our flexibility, experience, and attention to detail is key to always delivering the highest level of service and products.” Renowned as a trusted supply chain partner, the firm can rely on repeat business from highly satisfied customers. “A large proportion of our contracts come as a direct result of works that have been completed to such a high standard that the client or contractor has requested to work with us again,” Steve elaborates.
