West Midlands-based businesses B.E. Wedge and Spectator Seating have teamed up to work on an exciting renovation project at one of Scotland’s most famous football stadiums.
B.E. Wedge provided its specialist spin galvanizing service to approximately 5,000 steel components used as part of the construction of the new East Stand at Hibernian FC’s Easter Road venue. Wolverhampton-based stadia specialists Spectator Seating produced and used the components to create parts for the new seats installed at the historic Edinburgh ground.
Lee Dickens, Commercial Manager for Willenhall-based B.E. Wedge, said: “Spectator Seating has a proven track-record of working on sports stadia redevelopments. We were understandably pleased to help out with their latest project at Easter Road, and they did a fantastic on the new stand.”
The 6,400-seat capacity East Stand at Easter Road was officially opened – ahead of schedule – in time for Hibernian FC’s big Scottish Premier League match against Glasgow Rangers at the start of the 2010-11 season back in August.
