Energy price cap – John Reid & Sons (Strucsteel) Ltd comment

Simon Boyd, managing director of John Reid & Sons (Strucsteel) Ltd, said: “The price cap is to be broadly welcomed as it is significantly less than the rate we have been quoted by industry suppliers although it is still an increase of 100% on our current cost.

“On the face of it, it is more bearable although it is incredibly important that the supply chain passes all of the savings on. If so, I am confident that the price cap will prevent an immediate increase over the next six months after which time it is inevitable that more support will be needed unless conditions in the energy market change.”

Simon added: “Certainty is absolutely vital in business and we will be lobbying at the highest level to ensure companies […]

Energy support package – reaction comment

Simon Boyd, Managing Director of John Reid & Sons (Strucsteel) Ltd, comments upon energy support measures announced today: 

“Our new Prime Minister’s intervention to freeze energy costs is clearly welcome although it would have been preferable to see the timescale expanded beyond six months for businesses.

“Capping energy costs at the same price per unit that households pay will help and it will be useful to see more details about this in order to gain greater clarity for budgeting over the coming months.

“It is encouraging to see further support promised for vulnerable sectors beyond the initial six months’ package based on a review this autumn, during which time I will forcefully be pressing the case for manufacturing and the steel industry.

“Overall, the new Prime Minister has […]

Steel Times International recently published an article about REIDsteel leading the way in the structural steel sector in a special edition about decarbonisation. Many thanks to the magazine for focusing on our initiatives. Here is the full article…

Deadlines are coming ever closer – including the government’s 2050 net zero target for all sectors of the economy and the 2035 aspiration for near-zero emissions from ore-based steelmaking recommended by the national Climate Change Committee.
