Despite facing multiple challenges over the last 15 months, including the Covid-19 pandemic, steel price volatility and material shortages, Harrogate Steel has kept on target with its ambitious growth strategy by making a series of new appointments and expanding its production facilities.

A significant increase in secured orders for both structural steel and architectural metalwork has led to the recent appointment of six new team members to help fulfil these contracts and support the company’s high-quality design, fabrication, and installation services. This growth in business requires further production capacity, and an additional warehouse has been secured alongside current premises in Darley on the outskirts of Harrogate.

The new members include Ian Pudan as Design Manager, Stuart Cartney as Site Operations Manager, John McMullan as Commercial Trainee and Tom Howarth, Gerard Buckley and Lewis Walker who will join our expert production team.

The past year has seen Harrogate Steel design, manufacture and install the steelwork packages on a number of large scale projects including the new Allam Diabetes Centre for Hull and East Yorkshire Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust,  a new 900 capacity Family Stand for Harrogate Town FC as well as intricate architectural metalwork projects like Daleside Nurseries for HACS Group and more education projects including Sherburn Hungate Primary School in Leeds. Having built a reputation for a high quality, efficient service and with a focus on delivering complex jobs that require attention to detail and precision engineering, the new team members will support on all future projects, allowing Harrogate Steel to continue to go from strength to strength.

Richard Searle, Commercial Director and Co-Owner comments “We’re very proud of what our team has managed to achieve in what has been one of the most challenging times for our industry. We are excited that our new team members share our values and vision and will support in the next phase of our growth and development. It’s also a great time for us to invest in the skills of the next generation workforce which is why we’ve appointed an apprentice into our fabrication team.”
