REIDsteel in Nepal


Home to the highest point on earth, Mount Everest and the birthplace of Gautam Buddha, Nepal is an ancient and beautiful country.

Today, its people are looking to the future – The UK is helping by providing aid from the Department for International Development (DFID) and working with IMC Worldwide to support the Nepalese people in gaining reliable infrastructure.

The work is coordinated by Tim Stiff, of ICMW, acting as Team Leader for the Rural Access Programme, RAP2, and reporting back to the British government.

The only way for the country to advance and eliminate rural poverty is to build roads and bridges. Nepal’s total road network and density are low and only 43% of the population has access to all-weather […]

REIDmarine at the 2013 PSP Southampton Boat Show

REIDMarine are pleased to announce the conclusion of a very successful Southampton Boat Show, with a general air of positivity within the marine industry our order books are looking strong for 2014.

The 45th Southampton Boat Show took place from the 13th September through to the 22nd. Although the weather was mixed it was great to see a combination of new faces and some old friends enjoying the various activities.

From having a go at Paddle Boarding to admiring the Bessie Ellen, one of the last surviving West Country trading ketches.

We even caught a glimpse of Top Gear’s Richard Hammond launching one of the new model motor boats.

For the past 20 years REIDmarine have exhibited at both the […]

REIDsteel at the Olympics

By Sales Engineer, Toby Hill-Cousins

The nation took great pride in the success of 2012 Olympic Games, and REIDsteel were no different.

With fear before the games commenced that the huge crowds would draw a great terrorist threat to both the capital and the cities and towns throughout the UK holding events, it was imperative that security was top priority and that our nation was protected from any potential disasters.

Extensive testing has been carried out and gates have been approved and tested to BSI PAS 68.

The systems were originally designed for military use but this low cost system which does not require any foundation works has been deployed around airports, sporting events energy facilities and commercial facilities across the UK.

REIDsteel are proud to have played a large part […]

From Draughtsman to Triathlete

Tony Rendall has been a draughtsman at REIDsteel for fifteen years. In his free time he is a keen triathlete having competed in many events over the years.

We offer our sincere congratulations to him, as he recently came 15th at the 2013 Triathlon World Championships in London. Here’s what he has to say about his triathlon training and experiences:

“I race at Olympic distance and Sprint distance Triathlon events in the UK and abroad. For the Olympic distance these consist of a 1500m swim, followed by a 40km cycle, and finish with a 10km run and take around 2 hours to complete.

The Sprint races cover half of these distances but are run at a very fast pace (virtually flat out) so are just as hard.

I usually train […]

Summer at REIDsteel

This year was the 50th annual fundraiser for the Mudeford RNLI lifeboat crew, with more people than ever before turning out to enjoy the faire and watch the spectacular Raft Race.

Entering crews throw on fetching fancy dress and set sail on an equally fashionable raft to raise money for Mudeford RNLI station. Among others, there were teams representing Highcliffe Charity Players, Priory Vet Group and of course, REIDsteel.

July 2013 marked the sixth time that REIDsteel have entered the infamous Mudeford Raft Race. Confidence was high leading up to the event having previously won three times in succession.

To recognise the outstanding achievement by Andy Murray at this year’s Wimbledon Tournament it was decided amongst the crew that Tennis would be the theme for this year’s […]

REIDsteel Helps New Forest Ice Cream Structure for Growth

newforesticecream-news02New Forest Ice Cream, one of the UK’s fastest expanding ice cream brands, is celebrating production starting in its brand new purpose built Lymington headquarters that was designed in close conjunction with Christchurch-based REIDsteel.

A family firm launched 30 years ago that now supplies over 2,500 outlets across the UK, New Forest Ice Cream was approached by REIDsteel when it outgrew its old premises and was struggling to find a suitable new building in the New Forest area.

newforesticecream-news01The new 2,000m² premises provide state of the art ice cream production facilities plus bright and modern office space. A dominating feature of the new building is the giant freezer which occupies around one third of the internal footprint of the new building.

REIDsteel worked […]
