John Reid & Sons Ltd (REIDsteel) has launched new development plans. We’re aiming to move to a new state-of-the-art facility after outgrowing our existing home of more than 50 years in Christchurch.

The proposal is that up to 220 new homes be built on our site in Reid Street after we leave for our new headquarters elsewhere within the borough.

We have commenced consultation about our proposals for housing on the site in Reid Street and intend to lodge an outline planning application by the end of the year.

We’re holding a public exhibition for local residents, businesses and the community from 4pm to 8pm on Thursday 4th October in the community room at Christchurch fire station, Fairmile Road, Christchurch.

A flagship hospitality centre with steelwork designed, manufactured and supplied by REIDsteel has officially opened at the iconic Thruxton Motorsports Circuit.

We’re aiming to play a major role in the reconstruction of hurricane hit communities in the Caribbean with our disaster-resistant buildings.

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.

We’ve has been called in because of our expertise and strong relationships built with communities and businesses over many years.

One of the first projects will be to rebuild a school funded by a wealthy local benefactor in Tortola, which is the largest […]
