History & Heritage

Hill & Smith’s trading roots reach back to the year 1824, when the company was established as Hill’s Ironworks in the West Midlands, England. In its early years, the company designed and manufactured products such as puddling machines, hurdles and fencing, wrought iron shafts, crank shafts, piston rods and connecting rods.

The company quickly gained worldwide acclaim for its role in projects such as the laying of many miles of fencing for Queen Victoria in 1860; the ornamental gates and parapet railing for the Royal House of Siam in the 19th/20th Century; its work on the Sydney Harbour Bridge; the construction of the Royal Dockyard at Simonstown, South Africa; the gates at Hong Kong market; and the European Club in Shanghai. The company was also responsible for the manufacture of structural steel work used in the construction of whole factories, warehouses, ironhouses, market roofs, railway station roofs, footbridges and walkways, including the dome steelwork at Birmingham University.

Today, Hill & Smith is a decentralised group with specialisations primarily serving the infrastructure, building and construction industries. It is one of the largest suppliers of galvanised steel in the UK.
