Severfield-Watson Structures Ltd

Severfield-Watson Structures is the UK's largest structural steel company, with a combined annual capacity of around 75,000 tonnes of fabricated steelwork per year and the most extensive product range and capability in the industry.

The business has 2 separate facilities (Dalton, North Yorkshire and Lostock, Lancashire) with their own specialist areas of expertise, but function as one trading company, capable of delivering a complete service from input at the conceptual stages to successful project completion.

Dalton Facility

The Dalton facility is the largest of the operating Companies and is the hub of much of the Group's activity.

On its 55 acre site it now has 10 production lines where the manufacturing process is undertaken in a controlled environment, with the capacity to process some 3,200 tonnes of steel per week.

It is a model example in the industry, and it is the Company's clear intention to keep it so.

Company Key Points:

  • Market leading performance
  • Largest steel fabrication facility in the UK
  • Modern manufacturing processes
  • In-line painting
  • Intumescent coating facility
  • Extensive design/detailing support
  • FabsecĀ® beam production
  • FirebeamĀ® production
  • Fully networked, computerised tracking system
  • BCSA Steel Construction Sustainability Charter Gold Member

Examples of the progressive attitude of the Company are the "state of the art" and innovative plate line, along with three intumescent paint lines.

From these installations, cost and quality benefits are now being realised, and there is the expectation that they will have an increasing impact on future business.

There are similar expectations from the introduction of the specially designed FirebeamĀ®, capable of two hours fire resistance.

The streamlined nature of the manufacturing facility, with all its attendant efficiencies, is geared for the strong element of repeat business in the structures market.
