  • 2022 International Trade

Special Quality Alloys Ltd (SQA) is a family‐owned manufacturer of forgings, rolled rings, bar and machined products. Industries served include oil & gas, power generation and emerging renewables markets.

Part of the Special Steel Group, SQA was established in 1986. By combining a highly skilled and committed workforce and technical metallurgy expertise to produce forgings and rolled rings to demanding industry requirements, it has sustained a strong reputation for quality, service and value.

Winning a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the category of International Trade was a very proud achievement for the company and an honour to receive.

Kirsty Wilson, Business Development Manager ‐ Europe said ‘Winning a Queen’s Award was a great moment in the company’s history. We pride ourselves on our international sales, exporting to 29 countries and speaking 10 languages between the team. ‘

In early 2023, SQA received a call advising that they had been selected to welcome HRH The Princess Royal during her visit to the city of Sheffield. They certainly believe their Queen’s Award success contributed to this event which they were delighted to host. During the afternoon of the visit, Her Royal Highness met and chatted with employees and was given a tour of their facility, including a demonstration of the forging and ring rolling operations.

It has been a fantastic 12 months for the business, now in its 37th year, and SQA remain very optimistic for the future!
