About South West Steel Construction
South West Steel Construction Ltd was started by Ian Ellacott in 2000. He has been the director of 2 other Steel Frame Building companies which he started himself over his 27 years in the industry.
He began his career working for another Steel Building manufacturer where he sold and erected buildings for them; this meant he gained key skills in sales, construction and the understanding of how a quality Steel Frame Building goes together.
After realising he had a strong talent in the industry, he decided to set up his own company and what he is best known for; Crown Steel Buildings. This was an extremely successful company and a market leader in the UK and probably the largest in the South West.
After a period of customers ringing him and pleading that he starts making sheds again, he decided to start South West Steel Construction. It was small to begin with, but already the company was taking off and word began to spread in the area. After things started getting so busy he decided to expand and build a brand new purpose-built factory on Holsworthy Industrial Estate.
Using his design team and structural engineers, they all came up with our large industrial factory which we work from today. Starting with a small team of office staff and fabricators the company has grown to a busy team of 23 staff members!
South West Steel Construction is now proud to provide the UK, Ireland and even the world quality Steel Frame Buildings with the best possible specification. The South West Steel team is always growing and is proud to employ many local people, supporting the community. In 2011 the company had an annual turnover of over £7,000,000.
