The heritage of the company is in Scunthorpe where some of the most advanced techniques of steelmaking are developed. Grayton have had a permanent base on the Iron and Steel works for 30 years.

Iron & Steel

A core team of highly experienced tradesmen are based within the steelwork complex in Scunthorpe. Their proficiency is required to undertake refurbishment of some of the core infrastructure in addition to their involvement in the construction and installation of new equipment and plant. Our unique experience in managing Coke Oven and Blast Furnace gasses enabling them to be diverted to fuel to the on-site power station, has resulted in Grayton’s knowledge being recognised in many other industries.

“As always your lads have done an excellent job replacing the highline beams. Please pass on our thanks to Ben and his teams. Excellent job by all – Thank you.”‐ Mick Johnson, British Steel
“I just wanted to send a quick note to thank you for the work on the Cold Blast Main. We went from quite a dangerous position in terms of site security due to the pad sinking pulling the trestle leg with it and mains almost coming off the support saddles. The response was very quick and within a week we had a design to work to and within 1 ½ months the design was turned into reality and fitted restoring us back to a comfortable position – added to that it was right over the Christmas period! Thanks again for the efforts on this one, I can finally get a good nights sleep!”‐ John Coleman - Lead Mechanical Engineer, British Steel

“We devised a solution for British Steel to significantly reduce and simplify the connection to their DLCO gas holder, removing all redundant isolation valves, platforms and piped services. We manufactured and installed a new 10m piped spool with seal pot and pipework. Due to the volatile nature of the residue inside the gas main, we had to cold cut and water jet clean the gas main - which allowed hot work operations to commence and the removal of contents for lifting operations.”‐ British Steel
