Pete Anniss

Today we are delighted to announce the completion of a management buyout of Datum Alloys. The MBO was supported by Rockpool Investments LLP and heralds a new era for Datum Alloys.

Our new Board will be comprised of Mr. Peter Anniss (Managing Director), Mr. Ian John (Operations Director) and Mr. Ben Widger (Finance Director).

The Board would like to thank Ben Scott, founder and previous owner of Datum Alloys, for his hard work. He started the business in 1993 and bears much responsibility for the strong position we have achieved in our marketplace. We wish him the best in his new ventures.

We are excited to take Datum to the next stage, driving the sale of our new products whilst continuing to provide the level of service that our customers know and expect.

As with any important business change, we will work closely with our partners, suppliers and customers to ensure a smooth transition process and the same high standards of service they have come to expect.  

This is the beginning of an exciting period for Datum Alloys. The Board and Management team are confident that we will continue to facilitate growth and opportunities for all stakeholders.
