About Us

SMD Stockyards (SMD) has been borne from the successful acquisition of Richard Lees Steel Decking (RLSD) Stockyard facilities. After RLSD’s announcement to close, SMD took the opportunity to acquire the business to supply stock lengths of Steel Floor & Roof Decking Profiles, Wall & Roof Cladding along with all of the associated consumables, to the construction industry.

SMD are one of the UK’s leading specialists in the design, manufacture, supply and installation of composite steel decking. Established for over 25 years’, this acquisition will help continue and develop the excellent service provided to our customers.

SMD supply their own range of steel decking profiles; these offer a comparable alternative to the products historically supplied by RLSD.

Our approach encompasses four important elements:

• Quality
• Service
• Safety
• Sustainability

Annually, our experienced team is responsible for the successful supply of over 100,000m² square metres of Floor Decking / Roof Decking / Cladding to building projects across the UK. Our solid reputation for excellent quality products and end-to-end service delivery make SMD Stockyards the preferred supplier for many leading building contractors and steelwork fabricators.

Our clients have exacting standards, timescales and budgets to work to. By tightly controlling our resources at all stages and maintaining high stock levels we are able to provide unrivalled levels of flexibility and control.

Meeting customer needs

Our focus on flexibility means we are able to deliver either an end-to-end service, supply & fix, or project specific elements such as edge trim depending on your specific project requirements.

No order too big or too small.
