About Us

We’re all about steel…

Established in 1971, Watson-Towers Limited began life at Wishaw in North Lanarkshire. In 1991, we moved to the Sun Works, originally a steel foundry, in Coatbridge – with its rich heritage of steel making, Coatbridge remains home to an abundance of highly skilled steelworkers.

The Founders

Steel foundations

When it comes to steel, we like to think we know more than most. Bobby Watson and David Towers started the company in the early seventies, when the demand for steel grew. The business has maintained its dominance as a major steel plate service centre in Scotland. Now in its second generation, Neil Watson and Fraser Towers continue to provide the utmost commitment to service and quality.
