The thoughts and condolences of all at John Reid & Sons (Strucsteel) Ltd are with the Royal family following the passing of HM Queen Elizabeth II.

We are deeply saddened by her loss and share in the grief of so many across the United Kingdom and Commonwealth of Nations.

Mourning for her passing is combined with profound gratitude for her exemplary contribution to our country and public life; this has included unceasing support for the business community through countless workplace visits, patronages and awards.

Our company is proud to have won four prestigious Queen’s Awards for International Trade, and Her Majesty’s role on the world stage cannot be underestimated in its importance to our country’s businesses and economy.

Queen Elizabeth acted as a symbol of continuity and stability for so many years in a historic reign characterised by dedication, determination, leadership and good humour. She has set an impeccable example for her successor to follow.  God save the King.
