We all inherit a range of talents, skills and personality traits through our genes – they’re part of what makes us who we are. But 1 in 25 children also inherit a genetic disorder that makes their life very difficult. By pulling on a pair of jeans overdoing it in denim, we will be helping to fund the vital care and support services that transform their lives.

In 1973 Keith Denham founded Elland Steel Fabrications in a small rented workshop (500 sq ft) in Elland, West Yorkshire. After steady growth, in 1982 Elland Steel moved to Marshall Hall mills (7000 sq ft) located in Elland, the company has started to undertake sub-contract work for larger structural steelwork contractors. As the company grew in stature it commenced working direct for Principle Contractors towards the late eighties. In 1990, Elland Steel Structures Ltd as it is known today bought its present site in Highroad Well in Halifax (100,000 sq ft). In the early nineties the company supplemented its drawing office with the 3D detailing system STRUCAD and in 1994 began to employ its own in-house designers.
Elland Steel Structures Ltd have been upgraded from execution class 2 to execution class 4 status. Execution class 4 status is reserved for the most rigorous requirements of fabrication covered by BS EN 1090-2 and covers all building structures anticipated in the UK and Euro regions.
Mr Mark Denham has successfully completed eight further one week long modules at the Welding Institute (TWI) to gain the qualifications of International Welding Technologist (IWT) and International Welding Engineer (IWE). These qualifications satisfy the academic requirements of “Specific” and “Comprehensive” knowledge as specified in EN ISO 14731.
