Parker Steel’s Shoreham depot, on the Sussex coast now becomes the 27th location in Barrett Steel’s nationwide network.
The acquisition gives Barrett Steel a dedicated bulk receipts port facility and extensive processing equipment, including shot blast prime and paint facilities alongside six additional Ficep Endeavour saw-drill lines.
The move sees 50 Parker employees transfer to Barrett. The acquired site will now operate as Barrett Steel Shoreham.
