Richard Selby co-founded Pro Steel Engineering in 2012, having previously worked for Mabey Bridge for over ten years. Pro Steel Engineering is a steelwork construction services firm, working on prestigious projects such as the rejuvenation of the Olympic Park and the extension of Twickenham Stadium. The firm added a manufacturing facility in 2016 in response to demands from clients along with a multitude of additional service offerings.
In 2016, Pro Steel Engineering was named as the fastest growing firm in Manufacturing and Engineering at the Fast Growth 50 awards, and came second in the overall list of fastest growing businesses, with just 6 per cent of growth separating it from the overall winners. Pro Steel Engineering has also won a number of other high profile industry awards.
Richard became a member of the Prince’s Trust Wales Advisory Council in 2017 and Pro Steel Engineering has recently embarked on relationships with local colleges to provide workplace experience for students working towards their qualifications in construction and engineering. Through this, Richard hopes to encourage more young people into the industry to help reduce the skills shortage. Richard is also a Governor at Croesyceiliog School.
