Steven Greenwood
Steven Greenwood Managing Director
Just talk for 5 minutes with MD Steven, and his unparalleled experience in the coatings industry and irrepressible enthusiasm for all things engineering is glaringly obvious. Over 2 decades ago, following a successful career in the metal treatment sector, Steven founded Alphatek in the heart of industrial Lancashire. Under his Leadership and Direction Alphatek has grown in physical size of location and of course in well trained and experienced workers.

Without doubt a traditional hands on, well respected Senior Manager, Steven has safely steered the company through the goods times and through the recent recession, with a strong knowledge of his product and unwavering integrity.

A gifted engineer and innovative technical buff, not to mention his wicked sense of humour and clever wit, he is directly involved in all aspects of the Alphatek machine, shop floor, administrative department, quality, commerce and the Metlab.

Shaun is accessible and supportive and will ensure that all clients receive the highest level of service and quality of workmanship it is possible to provide.
