Motorways: crash barriers part of remit

The LSE-listed firm manufactures a range of products from specialist metal motorway crash barriers and lamp-posts to roofing products and galvanising services.

Despite the battering the construction sector has taken in recent months, the firm has performed relatively strongly thanks in part to increased government spending on road building and flood defences.

In its most recent trading update, Hill & Smith said demand from the building industry had been challenging but that growth would continue.

The firm has also grown its international businesses base and generates around 40 per cent of its profits from businesses operating in the Far East, continental Europe and the US.

The Hogarth team advising Hill & Smith comprises managing partner John Olsen, director Barnaby Fry and associate Vicky Watkins.
