Article 50 paves way for positive future

March 30th, 2017|Categories: News|

Press Release:

Multi-award winning REIDsteel has welcomed the historic moment as a once in a lifetime opportunity for the UK to confidently shape an even greater place in the world.

The 130-strong company, which has served the UK and international markets since 1919, says Article 50 also heralds the re-emergence of British Standards as the finest worldwide.

Family-owned REIDsteel, which is based in Christchurch, Dorset, is a four times winner of the Queen’s Award’s for Enterprise (International Trade).

It has the capability to design, manufacture, ship and erect entire steel buildings including their cladding and or glazing requirements anywhere in Great Britain and the world – from factory buildings in Mauritius and bridges in Africa to aircraft hangars and industrial buildings in the UK.

Boris Johnson visited REIDsteel on the Vote Leave battle bus late May 2016 during the EU Referendum campaign.

Managing Director Simon Boyd, who was regional Chairman of Business for Britain South West during the EU Referendum campaign, said: “This is a pivotal moment for Great Britain to take control of its own destiny.

Simon Says.. Spring Budget

Simon Boyd, Managing Director of Christchurch-based REIDsteel which works throughout the UK and exports worldwide , said: “It was a positive Budget as we look ahead to negotiations for Brexit.

“I am fully supportive of the Government and the work it has to do, and this Budget will help prepare the grounds for a strong economy during this time.

“From a business point of view there was good news with the reduction in Corporation Tax to 17%. The support for social care is welcome although a fundamental reform of the whole system is needed in the long term.

“The rise in the National Living Wage is also welcome because we believe in a decent wage for the UK workforce.

“Low productivity is a perennial issue and some companies prefer to employ cheap labour rather than invest in new technology, which is one of the measures required to help productivity levels rise.

“Funding for infrastructure improvements must always be a priority. I will be writing to East Dorset District Council and Christchurch Borough Council with an offer to meet to brainstorm ideas to win a slice of the £690m prize money available […]

REIDsteel Strengthens School Ties

March 9th, 2017|Categories: News|

Pupils and staff from Twynham School and The Grange School visited REIDsteel.

Students swapped the classroom for our workshops on a special visit to our headquarters with Dorset Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI) and our local MP Chris Chope. The 17-strong party from the Twynham and the Grange schools – both local to our premises in Christchurch, Dorset – were joined by our Managing Director Simon Boyd, Chairman Tim Reid and DCCI chief executive Ian Girling as well as Portfolio Holder for Economy at Christchurch Borough Council Vicki Hallam.

We were delighted to welcome the pupils and their head teachers for a visit after we sponsored both schools to become members of DCCI’s trailblazing Young Chamber Programme to link business and education.

The pupils and staff heard more about our wide-ranging work as a structural steel company with the ability to design and construct entire buildings around the world – from cathedrals in Central America and bridges in Africa to football stadiums and industrial units in the UK.

Our QHSE Manager Mark Bradbury and Works Manager John White led the tour, which included a presentation […]
