50 not out for Devoran Metals


Devoran Metals, one of the south west’s leading suppliers of reinforcing steel and concrete reinforcement products, is celebrating its 50th year in business.

Brothers John Orsman and Sandy Orsman bought the Truro-based business in 1966, formerly known as Pellows.

It was originally run as a joinery works and renamed to Devoran Joinery, which quickly became a byword for quality craftsmanship across the county.

Over the years the company diversified into engineering with sales of non-ferrous metals and eventually into reinforcing steel. Sandy’s son, Richard Orsman, inherited the company in 1985 and continues to run the business today as Devoran Metals.

MD, Richard Orsman, said: “Building on the expertise of our forefathers, we have seen the business grow into one of the region’s top suppliers of reinforcement steel.

“We would like to express gratitude to our employees and clients. It is with their support and dedication that we have achieved this landmark of success.”
