Award-winning steelwork firm files administration notice

The BSSA being very sorry to see the demise of such a creative and imaginative fabricator whose experience and skill of working with stainless steels will be missed in the UK market.

It’s unfortunate to hear about the struggles facing SH Structures, especially given their impressive track record and the iconic projects they’ve been involved in. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on businesses, particularly those in construction and specialised manufacturing, has been significant, and it seems SH Structures has been hit hard by the downturn.

Their inability to find a buyer despite their reputation and capabilities underscores the challenges they’re facing, compounded by the current market conditions where demand for highly complex architectural structures may be lower. The reduction in cash reserves and the need to take out a substantial loan further highlight the financial strain they’re experiencing.

Hopefully, with the appointment of an administrator, they can explore options to restructure and potentially find a path forward for the business. It’s crucial to support and preserve skilled workforces and companies with unique expertise like SH Structures, as they contribute significantly to the industry and the economy.
