Meet The Owner

Born and raised in England, Darren Harding has spent most of his life working in the steel industry. Having grown up around the fabrication business of a family friend, Harding started his apprenticeship at the age of 16. In 1996, Harding opened his first steel business in the south of England when he was just 23 years old. Ten years later, (now married with children) Harding and his family sold the business and moved to British Columbia in 2006. Four months later, they opened Hardings Steel in North Vancouver. Since then, the company has built a reputation for expert metal fabrication and friendly service that businesses throughout the Lower Mainland can rely on.

Whether you’re looking for a small custom part or full manufacturing of a larger structure, trust Darren Harding and the team at Hardings Steel to take your project from concept to completion.
