Ambitious plans for the future of John Reid & Sons Ltd (REIDsteel) have received a major boost with the green light for development of its site in Christchurch.

We have designed, manufactured and supplied hundreds of buildings in the Caribbean and Central America over the past century, including churches, granaries, schools, industrial units, aircraft hangars and bridges.

Our Sales Manager Mike Chappell has recently returned from a fact-finding trip to the British Virgin Islands and Antigua where he saw the devastation first hand. Mike met business and community leaders as well as government ministers.

His visit came after virtually all of REIDsteel’s structures – including warehouses, supermarkets and banks – survived hurricanes Harvey and Irma, which hit at speeds of more than 200 mph. Only one of our many buildings had suffered minor structural damage as a consequence of the hurricanes.
