Devoran Metals celebrates 50th anniversary

Published by
World Cement,

Devoran Metals is celebrating its fiftieth anniversary. Brothers John Orsman and Sandy Orsman bought the Cornwall based business in 1966, formerly known as Pellows. It was originally run as a joinery works and renamed to Devoran Joinery, which quickly became a byword for quality craftsmanship across the county. Over the years the company diversified into engineering with sales of non-ferrous metals and eventually into reinforcing steel. Sandy's son, Richard Orsman, inherited the company in 1985 and continues to run the business today as Devoran Metals.

Managing Director, Richard Orsman, said:"Building on the expertise of our forefathers, we have seen the business grow into one of the region's top suppliers of reinforcement steel. We would like to express gratitude to our employees and clients. It is with their support and dedication that we have achieved this landmark of success."

Devoran Metals now boasts over fifty years of experience supplying the construction industry and currently employs 14 people. It remains the only Certification

Authority for Reinforcing Steels (CARES) approved company within Cornwall offering a complete range of reinforced products for concrete.
