Hadley Vineposts setting new standards in quality and performance


Formed in 1964, Hadley Group is the UK’s largest cold rolled steel manufacturer. Based in and around Smethwick in the West Midlands, we operate from four UK sites as well as overseas facilities in Netherlands, Turkey, U.A.E and Thailand.

We are a privately owned company and employ over 600 people worldwide with a turnover of more than £127million.  We have sought to be at the forefront of advancing the techniques and technologies of cold rollforming, employing over 60 people within our in-house Group Technology Academy, the largest of its kind in the UK.

We are dedicated to developing cost-down solutions, with a proactive, customer focussed approach, striving to find innovations to improve our customer’s businesses.

A key determinant of Hadley’s success is the internationally patented UltraSTEEL® process that twice has won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation first in 2006 and more recently in 2014.  A process that has revolutionised the production of steel section components used primarily in the construction industry throughout the world.

Innovative thanks to its unique UltraSTEEL® process.
The Hadley vinepost has been developed using more than 20 years of proven experience of UltraSTEEL® in the steel construction industry.

More stability thanks to its dimpled surface.
The dimpled surface increases surface area by an impressive 22% which ensures the post comes into contact with more earth, which increases its stability in the ground.

In addition, the Hadley vinepost is so flexible that it can be rotated 180˚ and then spring back to its original position, without deformation.

Cost efficient thanks to its intelligent production process.
The UltraSTEEL® process clearly improves the mechanical properties of the Hadley vinepost without requiring any additional material. This guarantees exceptional value for money!

7cm tag pitch and reinforced tag.
The Hadley vinepost offers more wire spacing options and a tag strong enough to withstand the impact caused by harvesting machinery.
