This significant investment was further supported in 2001 by the purchasing of a derelict building – just 300 yards away from the Fountain Rd premises that had been their base for over three decades. This building would provide the business with a solid platform for expansion during the early part of the new millenium, which was further supported in 2008 with the purchase of yet more land. And more recently, the company has taken steps into the future with major investment in its I.T. systems enhancing provision by expanding web-based services, as well as our high-tech metal analysing and handling equipment, which now gives us the power to specialise in the purchasing and recycling of high-temp and exotic alloys.
All in all, Bassetts of Hull has come a long way in the last 70 years, from those humble beginnings to the new technology led business that it is today. However one thing has remained throughout this whole time, and that is the family values, honesty and integrity that only a well established family business can bring to their community, and Bassetss of Hull is now looking to the next 70 years with great excitement.
