Expamet Introduce New Sub Brand –  Expamet Construction

Whilst retaining his current responsibilities, National Key Account Manager, Lewis Walsh will now take the lead role in developing Expamet Construction, a sub-brand that focuses on key structural products such as masonry support, windposts and brick slip solutions.

Lewis has worked in the UK construction industry for over 10 years and will use his knowledge and contacts to continue to grow and develop Expamet Construction as a business, he comments:

‘Expamet is well known within the market as a manufacturer and supplier of plasterers bead and builders metalwork, however not many people are aware that they have also successfully designed and manufactured structural steel products such as windposts and masonry support to a variety of large and notable projects across the UK.

As a team, we have decided to split the Expamet brand into two in order to focus on these different markets respectively. In light of this, we have introduced new measures including a dedicated team of designers and fabricators to ensure that we are competitive in the marketplace with regards to price and lead times. A new website will be launched soon to showcase our past projects and the products and services we can offer.  This new focus will ensure we will exceed the expectations of our customers in terms of service, communication and quality.‘

If you have a project or any opportunities that you would like to discuss, please contact Lewis directly.

Part of the Birtley Group

Birtley began life as Birtley Building Products in 1965, based at the current site in County Durham. Originally a steel fabricator for the area’s mining and power generation industries, the company made its first steel lintels in 1967. Since then, Birtley has grown from reliable local supplier to a UK-wide force in construction design technology and product development.

In 1889, the British Metal Expansion Company was established in Hartlepool. It had sole European rights for the manufacture of expanded metal mesh, mainly for use as reinforcement and lath in the rapidly expanding sector of concrete construction. The business that grew from these early days later changed its name to Expamet.

Acquired by Birtley Group in 2015, Bowater Doors is a nationally-known name synonymous with top quality and imaginative composite residential door design and manufacture.

The product portfolio offers exclusive ranges for trade installers and a retail range providing doors direct to consumer and social housing organisations.
