MVDA member SS Components win prestigious Green Apple award

Mirfield, West Yorkshire, based SS Components Ltd has won a ‘GOLD CATEGORY’ Green Apple Environment Award in the national campaign to find Britain’s greenest companies, councils and communities.

They competed against more than 500 other entrants in the Green Apple Awards for Environmental Best Practice, and were presented with their trophy and certificate at a glittering presentation ceremony in The Houses of Parliament, on November 10th 2014.

The Green Apple Awards, which began in 1994, have become established as a major recognition for environmental endeavour among companies, councils, communities and countries.  In the UK, they are supported, amongst others, by the Environment Agency, Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, Chartered Institution for Wastes Management.

SS Components started, by Mr. John Smith in 1974, as a vehicle dismantler, but later changed direction.  Today, the company has 2 main services:


  • Supplies core components for remanufacturing
  • Exports parts to Developing Countries

These generate a multi million pound turnover, reclaiming 60.000 - 70,000 tonnes of vehicle components every month, and the company is widely recognised & respected.  Even today, John still plays an active role in the business. 

SS Components are global suppliers to the re-manufacturing industry of second hand (core units) vehicle components (e.g. brake calipers, starter motors, alternators). Core units are procured globally, classified and stocked until customers require them.  A bespoke IT system, a knowledgeable team & an extensive logistics network enables them to respond to customer’s requirements within minutes, and ship globally.

SS Components specializes in:
·        Brake Calipers
·        Power steering hydraulic pumps
·        Power steering electro-hydraulic pumps
·        Power/ manual steering racks
·        Rotating electrics
·        Electronic steering columns
·        Air-conditioning compressors

Remanufactured parts have many advantages over new parts – not only do they save the enormous quantities of energy used in the manufacture of new items, and so avoid environmental damage, but they also typically cost less than 50% of the cost of new.

SS components also dismantles vehicles for export, with shipping destinations including Dubai, Nigeria, Angola, and Pakistan to name but a few.  Once purchased vehicles are dismantled piece by piece to the customer specification.
