Our History

       George Blakeman started in the business with Minnis Steel in the early sixties as a crane operator. He later moved into the front office as an estimator/manager until starting Blakeman McBride Steel Erection Company with his partner Barry McBride in 1973. Their work consisted of both structural steel, concrete tilt wall and metal building erection.
