Take home a tonne of steel
T
EMPLEPATRICK based steel
stockholder Hannon Steel is marking
its Balmoral Show debut by giving away
a metric tonne of steel from its stand at the
show.
Hannon Steel, which is open to the public
and operates out of the Karl Business Park
off Junction 5 of the M2 motorway, has
made steady inroads into the local steel
stockholding market since its arrival on the
scene just over three years ago.
“We saw an opportunity to hit that sweetspot between the major steel stockholders
and the large DIY stores or builders’
merchants,” explained Adrian Hannon, the
firm’s managing director.
“We have been quite successful in getting
a foothold in supplying small and mediumsized businesses and now we are focussing
on increasing awareness among individual
end-user customers.
“Farmers will often need quality steel at
short notice and in smaller quantities to
carry out a range of jobs in and around the
farm and what we do is ideally suited to
meeting that need.
“So, in many ways, it was natural for us
to come to the Balmoral Show and to try to
make a splash – giving away a tonne of steel
from our stand just seemed like a good way
to get talking to people and to let them know
what we can offer.”
n The Hannon Steel team stand is D5A, facing
the Spar Arena.
OPPORTUNITY: Adrian Hannon, Managing
Director (left), and Jonathan Whyte, Operations
Manager.
