A STEEL fabrications firm has designs on a secure future after winning a business award.
G & D Enterprises Ltd was named winner of the monthly award run by Huddersfield law firm Eaton Smith and the Lockwood-based Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce.
The award was presented to owners Denise and Greg Collier by Eaton Smith partner David Blakeborough.
Greg and Denise Collier set up G & D Enterprises in 2000 with less than £100 to supply security posts to caravanners.
Over the years they widened their range to include other steel fabricated security products and work with architects, councils and major companies.
Commissions have ranged from producing high temperature steel access doors for Drax Power Station to architectural mesh braziers for the planting of flowers.
Unusual assignments have included providing flower-shaped rain shelters for schools and small items for the Chelsea Flower Show.
The company, which employs 15 people at Lockwood, has also gained “heritage” contracts to replicate and restore pieces of street and park furniture.
The partners are also seeking new markets for its products.
