Warming to Global: family automotive business is driven by sustainability

K&M Global Ltd may have long-standing international reach but Saddleworth remains at the heart of its operation.

Last month a new division was added to the family run company at Wall Hill Mill in Dobcross – a truck & van parts enterprise designed as a one stop shop to keep customers’ vehicles or fleet on the road nationwide.

It reinforces the decision taken by K&M Global’s Managing Director Steven Dronsfield to concentrate efforts to improve and develop the premises rather than proceed with proposals for housing.

The Mill Lane works had outline planning permission from Oldham Council to become a 26-homes development.

But Steven, a former Commonwealth Games swimming silver medallist, wife Jane, the financial director, sales director Rick Suthers and the company are now dedicated to consolidating and diversifying their business in an environmentally sustainable way as possible.

“Our intention is to make the site better not worse and add value to the area” explained Jane.

“We know it has had problems and we were as disappointed as anyone we couldn’t do anything with it. 

“We will be demolishing some of buildings that are completely irreparable. 

“But we are passionate about making the rest of it 100 percent sustainable to preserve it so it doesn’t draw on the natural resources from surrounding areas.”
