Harold Newsome Ltd was established in March 1937, for nearly 80 years we have been an industry leader and innovator in the field of structural steel design, fabrication and installation.
The company has grown rapidly in the last decade, whilst contracts have increased in scope and complexity the core values at the heart of our family run company have remained. This allows us to provide a personal touch alongside the professionalism and attention to detail which we afford every project.
Harold Newsome established the business in March 1937, in the early years the company specialised in the design and production of small scale structural steel frames. During the 2nd World War the company diversified at the request of the government and produced components for the famous floating Mulberry Harbours which were moored off the coast of Normandy in the wake of the D-Day landings. After the war the business reverted back to providing structural steel frames from industrial sheds to schools and hotels as Britain re-grouped and re-built.
The business has thrived over its 80 year history and currently employs over 50 people. We pride ourselves on being a stalwart of the local community, providing jobs, sponsoring local teams and working closely with local businesses. If you have a project within the local community which you feel we could help with, please send your enquiry to Enquiries@haroldnewsomeltd.co.uk marked FAO Emma Newsome (Please note no enquiries should be made by phone).
Although the majority of our projects fall within the traditional heartlands of Yorkshire/Lancashire, the midlands and London, the Business operates throughout the length and breadth of the UK, in the last 3 years alone we have worked on projects based in every corner of the UK from Aberdeen to Penzance and Norfolk to the west coast of Wales.
80% of our work is carried out on a design and build basis, we specialise in the efficient and cost effective design of structural steel frames from large scale industrial sheds to, hotels, hospitals, schools and refurbs in tight inner city locations. Our in-house design team which consists of 5 structural engineers and 4 draftsmen with a combined total of 160 years of industry experience are able to offer a full design solution which interfaces with secondary trades and not just a stand-alone steel structure.
We pride ourselves on working closely with clients and main contractors with the aim of developing relationships which stand the test of time. This ethos has allowed us to develop partnerships which have spanned for over 40 years.
The company also has a longstanding history of investing in the staff it employs to ensure the workforce has all the skills and training necessary to maintain our position at the forefront of steel design, construction and erection which when combined with a very low staff turnover results in a high retention of skills, knowledge and contacts within the industry.
