Mabey launches new venture with ex-Rowecord team

Steelwork manufacturer Mabey Bridge has launched a new steel structures business led by staff from collapsed specialist Rowecord Engineering.

Mabey Steel Structures will initially focus on manufacturing for stadia, health and commercial schemes.

It is led by Jason Churcher, previously sales and proposals director of Rowecord Engineering, and its staff include Rowecord’s former technical director Paul Benwell and ex-Rowecord engineers, estimators and technical staff.

Mr Churcher, who is sales director of the new venture, said: “The new business builds on Mabey Bridge’s growing portfolio of business sectors that include infrastructure for road and rail, wind turbines towers and international bridging.

“We are able to offer the same levels of service and support that we are used to delivering, but with the benefit of the added resources available at Mabey Bridge.”

Mabey Bridge had already been offering work to welders and fabricators from Rowecord.

Rowecord, which had a turnover of £68m and worked on the Olympic Aquatics Centre roof, went into administration in May. A single buyer, which administrators have declined to name, bought all the company’s plant shortly afterwards.
