Steel specialist plans expansion to mark 10th anniversary


A North Wales specialist steelwork fabrication company is lining up a major programme of expansion to mark its 10th anniversary.

S4S (Steel 4 Structures) will invest over £1million over the next couple of years to meet growing customer demand.

The Buckley-based business also expects to increase its workforce by around 10 to 40.

The company, which was founded in September 2011, will move into a unit adjacent to its current facility next month creating new office space, staff parking and a fittings shop.

The transformation will mean that S4S will increase the total size of its premises from 37,500 sq. ft to over 50,000 sq. ft.

The next phase of investment will also see the business add new haulage vehicles to its fleet, enabling it to transport heavy loads.

S4S’s services include all aspects of structural steelwork and metalwork. The company offers its clients a turnkey service from design, fabrication, finishing and site installation.

S4S has also carried out projects for a many household names in the retail, food and beverage and hospitality sectors including Costa Coffee, Greggs, Coca Cola, Heineken, Beefeater Gin, Home Bargains and Farmfoods.

The company, which is headquartered on the Spencer Industrial Estate in Buckley, has also provided new showrooms for major motor dealerships including Porsche and Jaguar Land Rover.

The S4S team is committed to supporting important causes. As part of its anniversary celebrations, staff will be walking up Snowdon with the aim of raising thousands of pounds for charities including Nightingale House Hospice, Bullying UK, Make A Wish and CALM, the men’s mental health campaign.

Tom Phillips, S4S’s Managing Director, said: “The business has grown consistently during the last 10 years and our success owes a lot to the partnerships we have formed with our customers and the dedication and hard work of the S4S team.

“We have also always believed in the importance of ongoing investment to ensure that our facilities, equipment, services and people are of the highest possible standard.

“The expansion of our site to include new offices, staff parking and a fittings shop is the next milestone in our business with further investment planned over the next couple of years. Our ultimate goal is to build our own bespoke fabrication facility.”

During the last year, S4S completed its biggest ever project – a flagship multi-storey car park at Alderley Park, Cheshire. The seven-storey galvanised structure provides 2,227 car parking spaces and included 1,200 tonnes of fabricated steel.
