We are Smiths Metal Centres Ltd
(UK company registration number 03485838)
We're a UK based engineering raw materials stockholder/distributor
with service centres across the country and export links across
the World. Judged on turnover, number of employees, number of
sites, range of products, or pretty much any other criteria,
we're undoubtedly one of the UK's largest distributors of the
materials we sell.
We've been around a
long time, with a company history extending back to the year
1780, but today we're also leaders in supply chain development
and improvement. We supply a wide variety of customers with a
very wide variety of raw materials in a wide variety of ways.
We're customer focused and our aim is to supply the materials
our customer want in the way they want to be supplied.
The fundamentals of our business are having
the right materials, in the right place, in the right
quantities, at the right time. Perhaps that sounds easy, and
indeed achieving one or two of those fundamentals on their own
can be done with relative ease. However, managing all four of
these fundamentals correctly and at the same time is very
difficult and something we're very proud to say we can do.
We believe that we can make an important
and effective contribution to every supply chain we're a part
of. Correct raw material selection can make a huge difference to
the overall efficiency of a supply chain and the revenue that
each player in it derives.
