Steven Greenwood
Steven Greenwood Chairman
Meet our co-founder Chairman and Grand-Father to Alphatek. With an unparalleled level of experience of the Thermal Spray Coatings industry and an irrepressible enthusiasm for all things engineering, Steven’s desire to constantly drive business excellence is glaringly obvious.

In 1993, following a successful career in application development, supporting and supplying equipment and materials to the Thermal Spray Coatings industry for a global Swiss organisation, Steven co-founded the establishment of Alphatek Hyperformance Coatings in the heart of industrial Lancashire, specifically to cater for an International requirement for on-site Thermal Spray Coating and finishing service for the pulp & paper industry.

Whilst the business has flourished to supply solutions to many more Industries since it’s incorporation, the original spirit & ethos of Alphatek & why it was set up originally remains evident within Steven, who today still represents the pinnacle of Alphatek’s strong management team.
