Original Steel Services Ltd (OSSL) is involved in steel and metal processing.
For the last two years, OSSL has been listed by the London Stock Exchange and the Daily Telegraph as one of the 1000 Companies to inspire Britain. There are five parts to the Group; a steel stockholder, serving the engineering and forging sector, a forging company supplying components from half a kilo up to 400 kilos, mainly for export to the mining, oil and gas and off road sectors. Also, a steel rolling mill, supplying specialist steels for the manufacture of chains, horseshoes and metal flooring, a specialist bunded tanks operation which designs and builds tanks up to 200,000 litres, as well as a metal fabricator, and a contract manufacturer based in Poland.
OSSL was founded 10 years ago, although the companies in the Group have very long pedigrees. The strategy is to expand activity in each area and, where appropriate, acquire synergistic businesses. The shareholders are passionate about manufacturing and as such 80% of profits are reinvested back into the business. OSSL operates with high ethical standards.
OSSL has grown significantly and as a result was a Sunday Times 100 fast track company in 2012-2013.
