BREXIT MEANS BREXIT: Simon Boyd, mangaging director of REIDsteel, has issued a rallying cry ahead of this week’s general election

Leading Brexit campaigner Simon Boyd, managing director of multi-award winning Dorset company REIDsteel, has issued a rallying cry before this week’s general election.

He said: “Voters must back Brexit at the polls on Thursday.

“The fate of Brexit hinges on the result. All those who voted to ‘Leave’ last June and all those who now want the best possible outcome for Britain must turn out in force.

“There can be no complacency nor any turning back. Theresa May has promised to fulfil the promise of Brexit and we must hold her to it.

“A decisive victory would present a united front and strengthen her hand to secure the right deal in negotiations due to start with the EU very soon.

“Brexit promises incredible opportunities to build a stronger and outward looking Britain whilst forging new trading relationship with our friends in Europe and the world.”

Mr Boyd was regional Chairman of Business for Britain South West during the EU Referendum campaign and welcomed Boris Johnson to REIDsteel in Christchurch on the Vote Leave battle bus in late May 2016.

He added: “As a 130-strong company with a lengthy export heritage and many UK customers, long-term certainty can only come for SMEs such as ourselves from a proper Brexit.

“There are many important issues in this election, but more than anything else it is about implementing the referendum decision made for Brexit last year.

“I encourage the British people to show their support and make the right decision on June 8 so we can enter negotiations with a new sense of purpose and commitment to restore Great Britain’s position as a global power.”


The comments come after new figures from the World Bank this week upgraded UK growth forecasts for the next three years – including growth to 1.7% this year compared with a previous estimate of 1.2%.

Manufacturing trade body the EEF’s latest quarterly survey found that output and orders had increased, with strengthening export demand playing a key part.

Family-owned REIDsteel is a four times winner of the Queen’s Award’s for Export.

The company, based in Christchurch, Dorset, designs, manufactures, ship and erects all types of steel-framed buildings and structures, including their cladding and or glazing requirements.

They include commercial premises, aircraft hangers, stadiums, bridges, process plants, industrial units, large commercial buildings, grandstands, bridges, process plants, car parks and many other steel structures in the UK and worldwide.
