The newly formed UK Metals Council, which is charged with delivering the metals sector strategy “Vision 2030”, has announced its first Chairman. Simon Macvicker of Bridgnorth Alumninium ( a past Chairman of ALFED) will head up the organisation and the various individual work-streams focussed on:

  • Supply Chain
  • Innovation and R&D

  • Skills and Training
  • Sustainability

The BSSA has volunteer representatives from member companies on each of these five work-streams and is further represented (as are all other key metals related trade associations) by an Office Bearer. The BSSA Office Bearer is Graham Hargreaves of Stainless Steel Services Ltd.


The first meeting of the Council will be held at the offices of the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills in London on July 13th and will be joined by the Rt Hon Anna Soubry MP, Minister of State.
