About Us »

"I have had the pleasure of working with Chris Locke and Katrina Williams since I joined Williams Fasteners in November 2001 as the Financial Controller.  Their expertise, knowledge and professionalism showed from the very start and this helped us to create a working relationship that continues to develop and benefit both the company and myself personally.

In 2005, the opportunity arose for Tony Searles and myself to undertake a management buyout and the first people to provide us with advice were Chris and Katrina.  With their support and guidance, we were able to complete the process within six months.  From the very beginning, Chris introduced us to the idea of how we would be able to finance a proposal that would be of benefit to ourselves, the sellers and the company.  On the day of completion, Chris was with us to the very end helping our solicitors iron out any last minute problems and providing the information and details to satisfy the vendors requests and demands.

Whenever we need assistance or advice, both Katrina and Chris are willing and able to help us in any way that they can – and, most importantly, they communicate in a language that we understand!  They leave the jargon behind whenever important matters arise and talk to us at the right level in order to provide a solution that is right for us and the company.

Being based in Sheffield, we are totally aware that finding local accountants could be financially beneficial for the company, but the business relationship we have with Locke Williams Associates cannot be measured by money alone.  The service we receive is first class and they are not just accountants, they are one of our key business partners. 

I know that I can speak for Tony here when I say that we consider Chris and Katrina to be colleagues and friends and we wish them all the very best in their new venture."
