Dorset Chamber has strengthened the ranks of its platinum business partners with leading structural steel firm John Reid & Son Ltd (REIDsteel).

REIDsteel has joined the fold as the 130-strong firm steps up its support of the chamber.

The chamber’s business partner programme is for members which wish to make a greater contribution to the organisation and the business community.

REIDsteel designs, manufactures and builds all kinds of steel buildings across UK, Europe and the world – from bridges and large commercial buildings to hospitals and churches – including their glazing, cladding and doors.

Ian Girling, chief executive of the Dorset Chamber, said: “REIDsteel has been one of our strongest supporters of recent years.
