About us

David Nimmo formed Nimmo Industrial Buildings Ltd in 1988 primarily carrying out structural steel erection, roofing and wall cladding.  The company expanded over the years and in 1998 we formed Elite Steel Services Ltd as a sister company for fabricating our own steelwork.

Both Nimmo and Elite have adapted over the years to the changing demands of domestic, industrial and agricultural needs.  We now employ over 25 staff some of whom have been with us from the beginning.  Our projects take us throughout the UK often resulting in repeat business as we offer our customers a personal and professional service. 

Collectively both Nimmo and Elite turnover approximately £5 million a year.




Nimmo Industrial Buildings Ltd is a privately owned company specialising in structural steelwork, roof and wall cladding, that was established in 1988 and was formed with the knowledge that customers preferred to deal with experts who offered a personal and professional service and could react with the changing demands of industry and agriculture.

In 1988 Elite Steel Services Ltd was formed as a sister company for fabricating steelwork.  Elite Steel Services Ltd is run alongside Nimmo Industrial Buildings Ltd by David Nimmo, managing director of Nimmo Industrial Buildings Ltd and can therefore offer a full and comprehensive building service from start to finish.  We provide full design/detailing, fabrication and erection service of all steel framed industrial units and agricultural buildings to suit your personal requirements.  We also organise and submit planning applications when needed.

Nimmo Industrial Buildings Ltd takes the matter of Health and Safety very seriously.  Working within the strict guidlines set out by the full CDM regulations ensures that all parties involved in the design and construction process comply with all aspects of health and safety awareness and plant operation.  We have our own health and saftey officer who makes sure all health and safety matters are put in place before any site works commence.  All of our operatives hold competence certificates for plant, roof safety netting and CSCS (construction skills certificate scheme) meaning we do not need to rely on outside contractors and also ensuring that all works are carried out to our highest quality standards whilst implementing all aspects of health and safety.
