Born in the south, shaping the UK

SMD, specialists in composite metal flooring & roof decking


The south coast is known for its stunning beaches, cinematic landscape and its rugged Jurassic coastline – what’s not to love? That’s why SMD has been based here for over 30 years. Still family-run today, we provide our clients with market-leading products and services on projects nationwide.

Since we began, we’ve seen many changes, in our industry, client services and scale of projects we deliver, but one thing remains constant – our commitment to delivering quality and professional customer service to help our clients deliver on their builds every time.

We appreciate being based on the south coast could seem like it has logistical issues, but to ensure this has no impact on our clients, we have strategically-located construction hubs and site teams throughout the UK, and with our manufacturing plant based in Leeds we are ideally placed to service all your projects. Although we have the scale of operation that handles projects worldwide, we’ll never compromise on giving each of our clients a personal service – which is why many of them have been with us for years.


From our manufacturing processes to the level of Health & Safety we deliver on site, quality is our primary focus. Throughout the years our client offering may have changed, but our passion for delivering this quality hasn’t. We’ve achieved this by keeping the whole process from design to manufacture and installation in-house and under our direct control.


To the naked eye many people would struggle to differentiate our products from the competition’s, so we have had to ensure product quality is a given and have focused on client delivery to set us apart. We’ve done this by making sure every member of the team is an expert in their field, from office to site, to ensure they all cast the same meticulous eye across their aspect of the project to deliver a superior result every time.

In an industry where health & safety is critical, our commitment to it exceeds most clients’ expectation, through our procedures, paperwork, testing and site monitoring. A big aspect of this is our commitment to training and development. Through our dedicated training manager, we keep our site and office staff fully up-to-date with the latest knowledge, certifications and compliance throughout their career development with us.


With some of the best industry knowledge, training and equipment, it’s no wonder that we’re considered leaders in our field. Our end-to-end service which includes invaluable technical support from design to site delivery which is second to none, so whether you have a quick query relating to a product or need to speak to one of the team regarding a complex design issue, we’re here to help.


Our exceptional reputation and market position are only possible from years of credible results and delighted clients. We prove our value time and time again and can’t wait to see what the future holds – we hope that you are a part of it.
