Our History by Year


We're one of the UK's leading fully automated structural steelwork contractors and arguably a world leader in 'Just in Time' manufacture. Our plant is based in the midlands, near Nottingham and operates nation-wide with directly employed erection and design teams offering a one-stop solution to most steel construction needs.
We have the expertise to manage projects of all market sectors and prefer a minimum steel content of 400 tonnes and above, our largest project to date is circa £11.5 million. Our fully integrated Computer Aided design and Computer Aided manufacture systems together with the service we provide is second to none.
The company's excellence and skills have been recognised in various ways by the construction industry and the overall community. For structural engineering excellence, it has over the years featured in the prestigious Structural Steel Design awards scheme and for a range of projects – most recently the Constructionarium Mini-Gherkin Norfolk and Unilever House Leatherhead. The company has been recognised by major client contractors with their own Trade Contractor awards, and by the community with the coveted Nottinghamshire Company of the Year Award – sponsored by Nottinghamshire County Council, KPMG and RBS.
As a company, we are Quality Assured to BS EN ISO 9001, have Environmental certification to BS EN ISO 14001 and have gained certification to the Prestigious Welding Quality Management System BS EN ISO 3834 Part 2, and Factory Production Control (CE Marking) BSEN 1090-2:2008 EXC 4. Safety is paramount and our adherence to the Policy Statement on Health and Safety is our highest priority. This is reflected through our accreditation to BS OHSAS 18001:2007 standards.
