Newport-based tube and steel distributors, Tube & Steel Supplied Limited, is celebrating being in business for 20 years.

Since it was set up in 1999, the business, which is based in Corporation Road, Newport, has experienced many ups and downs in the sector, but, through diligent management and a vision for the future, TSS has gone from strength to strength, while remaining privately owned.

Under the current ownership, TSS has diversified its product range to be recognised as specialists in the supply of products supporting sectors such as industrial pipework, civil engineering, precision engineers and in recent years providing a new service involving the installation of balustrade systems for both commercial and residential clients.

With an experienced workforce of 16, the company has traditionally serviced Wales and the South West of England regions. In recent years this has expanded to incorporate other parts of the UK and on occasions non-UK clients.

Director Carl Hale said: “TSS has experienced exceptional expansion during our existence; no more so than over the past few years. Moving forward, our aim will remain focused on reinvestment and expanding our client base through the offering and service we provide.”

The growth of the business is expected to continue through 2019-2020, with the development of new products already under discussion along with ambitious plans to increase the workforce and supporting the local community.
