KimberMills forges ahead

A West Midlands company that helped pave the way for the Channel Tunnel and produces forged parts for use in hip replacements, is celebrating its 100th birthday in style.

KimberMills International, which employs 50 people across two sites in the Black Country and Coventry, has enjoyed a £1m boost in its centenary year by securing new contracts in the oil and gas, mining, motorsport, and rail sectors.
