REIDsteel flying high at MRO Europe

Posted on: 27/09/2017

A steel construction company which built hangars for the famous cross-Channel pilot Louis Bleriot will be leading the way at one of Europe’s premier aviation shows.
Christchurch-based REIDsteel is exhibiting at the MRO Europe conference for the aerospace maintenance industry at the ExCel centre in London on October 4 and 5.
The 130-strong steel construction company has nearly a century of experience designing and building bespoke aircraft hangars and their doors since the 1920s.
Its early hangars were for the famous French aviator Louis Bleriot – the first person to fly across the Channel.
Today the company retains its position at the forefront of the airfield industry with hangars of all sizes for aircraft ranging from the Airbus A380 to private jets.
Project engineer Toby Hill-Cousins said: “Although we design and build many different types of steel structures these days, aviation is in our DNA since our very first hangars for Louis Bleriot.
“We have led the way with new technologies and practices, including our own patented methods, as the aviation industry has evolved over the years.
“Aircraft are getting larger and have increasingly complex maintenance needs, while many hangars these days incorporate doors, cranes, offices and workshops.
“We have nearly a century of experience to call upon as we design and build some of the most technologically advances hangars and doors today.”
More than 7,000 people in the maintenance, repair and overhaul sector will attend event MRO Europe on October 3 to 5.
REIDsteel has the capability to design, manufacture, ship and erect entire steel buildings including their cladding and or glazing requirements throughout the UK and across the world.
It will be at stand 1845.
