Sturge Industries Ltd was formed in 1925, when the company began its life supplying various engineering products. However, it was in 1976 that the story of the modern-day Sturge began, after Sturge acquired Birmingham Associated Chain Co Ltd and started to manufacture ball chain.
Since then, Sturge has perfected the manufacture of ball chain, enabling us to grow from a purely UK supplier into the leading European manufacturer.
The secret to this success has been the business’ focus on producing a quality product, as well as providing a timely delivery service, ensuring that customers receive a first-rate product when they need it. To back this up, we are ISO 9001:2015 accredited.
One of the ways that we have achieved this is by maximum integration of manufacturing processes at our purpose-built facility in Dudley. While we also manufacture the chain itself here, we have our own metal slitting and plating facilities that ensure complete control of the process from start to finish. This means that we are able to supply customers with a top-quality product, perfectly suited to their needs.
These days, Sturge has been able to build upon its decades of experience in ball chain to become a truly international supplier. We currently have customers in over 30 countries, ranging from Europe, to the Far East and to North America; this figure continues to grow each year.
Sturge specialises in production of bead chain and ball chain in a variety of materials, including the following:
