Simon Boyd, managing director of Christchurch-based REIDsteel, said: “Congratulations from REIDsteel to His Majesty King Charles III and Camilla, the Queen Consort, on their coronation.

“We wish you a long, successful, peaceful and happy reign as our monarch and head of the Commonwealth.

“British engineering and manufacturing has an excellent reputation on the world stage, where the monarch’s role as an international ambassador and champion of UK plc is absolutely vital.

“REIDsteel has been privileged to design, manufacture and construct steel structures at home and abroad under five monarchs dating back to George V in 1919.

“We are proud to continue flying the flag for British engineering and manufacturing under King Charles III’s reign. Long live the king!”

REIDsteel will be closed on Bank Holiday Monday.
