About Us

Family Run Roofing Supplier

We are a family run business who, after 50 years in the industry, still proudly relies on the same values and work ethos that our founders set. We aren't just a business, we're here to provide the best possible service at the most reasonable price.

At the end of 2016 we invested over half a million pound into refurbishing the factory and purchasing new machines, to allow us to produce new products tailored towards the poultry market, whilst still looking after our 'bread and butter' projects. From one-off domestic customers to the larger industrial and agricultural projects, we cater for all jobs large or small while maintaining our outstanding treatment of our customers, with the same friendly family touch.

We have 10 (and counting) pieces of very highly advanced equipment to ensure we can produce our products to the highest standard, at the most competitive prices.

We can deliver throughout mainland U.K, therefore most delivery destinations won't be a problem to us because we also have our own delivery vehicles (we don't use third party shipping firms).

Along with all of our made to order products we stock a vast amount of Fibre Cement Roofing Products along with many different variations of Fixings and Accessories to cover every aspect of your project through to the finish. Our friendly, helpful sales team are here to help you every step of the way.

Seeing out the 20th century

1992

Creation of Hornsey Steels

in 1992 Mark set-up Hornsey Steels with the intention of keeping it a smaller, family run business; however it has also now grown into one of the largest manufacturers of roofing sheets in the U.K.

1989

Sale of Business

The business was sold in 1989 as it became way too large to run as a family business, however that wasn't the end of the love affair...

Mid 1970's

Rapid Growth

The business grew rapidly through the 70's and we soon became the largest producer of steel farm gates in the U.K leading to us being the major contractor to British Coal, with a now expanding workforce in excess of 130 staff and an annual turnover of £20m.

Early 1970's

The Beginnings

Brothers Chris & Mark Hornsey set-up business in 1970 making steel farm gates, originally called Hornsey Gates. In 1975 we purchased machinery to create corrugated steel sheets to compliment our existing product catalogue.
