It hadn’t meant to be cross country jaunt, but due to an oil spill on the motorway the and being stuck in a traffic jam for 25 minutes we decided to take the scenic route through the very narrow country lanes. We arrived safely and just about in time for the ‘meet and greet’ and ‘tee off times’.
HMG Coatings, one of our paint suppliers kindly asked REIDsteel if they could send a ‘crack team’ of golfers to their inaugural golf day to thank us for our custom. Unfortunately, the ‘crack team’ wasn’t available so Draughtsmen; Lee Stevens, Steve […]
Established in 1992, Abbey Fire Extinguishers Ltd are a family run business who specialise in all fire extinguisher and safety services across Dorset and Hampshire. John Fosbery a retired Dorset Fireman and owner of Fire Safety Company, Abbey Fire came to visit us to train our new Fire Warden recruits.
John regaled us with his tales of being a Fireman for much of his working life and was an informative and lively demonstrator of the many types of fire extinguishers needed on an expansive site like REIDsteel’s.
Across the office and workshops, the training gave five REIDsteel employees new Fire Warden status and 22 more people can now efficiently operate various fire extinguishers.
Danny Bradshaw from our stores department and now an official REIDsteel Fire Warden said that […]

They roamed around Covent Gardens before attending the matinée showing of The Commitments at The Palace Theatre. The most recent musical to headline at the theatre is based on the book by Roddy Doyle […]
Founded in Birmingham in 1857, Joseph Ash is one of Britain’s longest running galvanisers. REIDsteel have worked with Joseph Ash for a number of years and we were pleased to welcome them to our five acre site in Dorset.
Rob Nelson, Technical Manager at Joseph Ash Galvanising gave an illuminating presentation to explain galvanisation to our team of draughtsmen and designers right down to “steel chemistry”.
We were impressed to discover that not only do Joseph Ash galvanise our large and robust steel structures, but also delicate works of art such as sculptures by Sophie Ryder.
Thank you to Rob who improved our knowledge of designing steel fit to be dipped into the molten zinc of the galvanisation bath.
REIDsteel were privileged to welcome representatives from the Government of Ghana Health Select Committee to tour our five acre site and to view the design and fabrication of the latest hospital for which we are providing the design, fabrication and shipping of the steel frame and roof cladding.
