company was founded at Hereford, England, in the 1920's
and has since grown into one of the most modern and
efficient structural steelwork fabricators in Europe,
with a capacity today in excess of 12,000 tonnes per
Specialising particularly in the manufacture of galvanized
steel towers for the electrical transmission and distribution
industries, we have earned an enviable international
reputation over the years for accurate fabrication
of these structures using computer controlled production
In 1955 we became a member of the BICC plc group
of companies and we currently operate within the Balfour
Beatty Power Networks Division which is an operating
company within the Balfour Beatty plc group of companies.
This association enables us to offer a fully integrated
service embracing every aspect of overhead electrical
transmission and distribution world wide.
Alongside transmission towers, our company also manufactures
masts and towers for radio, television, microwave
and satellite communication. Several of our structures
are the highest of their type in the World.
We also produce lattice distribution poles, sub-station
support steelwork, flare stack support structures,
railway electrification structures and Callender-Hamilton
lattice girder bridges - in short, any kind of steelwork
where inter-changeability of parts and a first class
finish are essential.
Furthermore, within the city we have available to
us two modern galvanizing plants which can between
them process over 30,000 tonnes of structural steelwork
It soon becomes clear why Painter Brothers are one
of the leading producers of bolted lattice steelwork
in the world.
