Who We Are

About Us



As a leading supplier of quality steel structures since 1992, we have forged a name for ourselves in this challenging sector by focusing on our clients’ needs, and the specific requirements and conditions within which our pre – engineered steel buildings will be used. We specialize in the design, fabrication and installation of steel structures for a wide variety of uses, including agriculture, industry and commerce, churches and schools.

Read Our History

We have one of the most experienced teams in the field and their knowledge of the agricultural, commercial, industrial, school and church environments is extensive. Not only have they been responsible for the successful completion of over 10,000 steel structures but their knowledge of diverse conditions and elements has enabled us to add real value during the design, fabrication and installation phases. Clients often come back to us for further advice once the steel structures have received some fairly hardy wear and tear and we enjoy working alongside them to maximize the building’s effectiveness.
