Hadley posts a presence at Fruit Focus

West Bromwich-based Hadley Group, Europe’s largest privately owned cold rolled steel manufacturer, is exhibiting their innovative range of steel vine posts at Fruit Focus in July. Despite being launched only last year, they have had great success within the wine industry both in Europe and internationally, says the company.
The group was the first UK company to secure contracts to supply steel vine support posts into the French and German markets and it is gaining interest from as far afield as Australia and New Zealand.
James Hadley, sales representative, says: “The patented UltraSTEEL process used on our vine posts work hardens the base metal and ensures that the vine posts are lighter yet 20% stronger than plain steel posts, whilst also being more durable and easier to maintain than wooden alternatives. The uptake of our products in Europe and beyond has also given us credibility on our home turf, as UK vineyards may now rest assured that we have the expertise to develop solutions which will help them flourish as wine producers. ”
