New Strategic Member Steatite

Steatite ltd recently joined the Hereford and Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce as a strategic member. The company is a provider of highly reliable technology for use in extreme environments where dust, temperature, shock and vibration would cause the rapid failure of more conventional products. Focused on three distinct technology streams – computing, power and communications, Steatite provides rugged industrial computers and imaging technologies, battery packs and portable power products, secure radio systems and high-performance antennas, all for use in critical applications from the ocean floor to the edge of space. Steatite has a heritage within the electronics sector stretching back to its establishment in 1938, and prides itself on being a British technology designer and manufacturer with a global customer base.

Steatite’s Managing Director, Matthew Richards comments: “As a Redditch headquartered business, and also with a facility in Leominster, it made perfect sense for Steatite to become a strategic member of the Hereford and Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce. Through our membership, we are keen to strengthen existing relationships in the region and also establish new ones, be they customers, suppliers or partners.  The current trend towards “on-shoring”, where products are preferably sourced from other British suppliers, is a compelling reason to be involved in an organisation that aims to bring local companies together, and we look forward to working with like-minded local businesses”.
