We are a world-class supplier of engineering raw materials. Our objective is to provide all our customers, from the small machine shop to the large multi-national corporation, a supply path that continuously delivers the highest levels of service, quality and value.
With the world's aerospace industry becoming ever more global, Smiths Metal Centres flexibility enables us to meet the demands of this challenging, fast-paced, market.
We source from the highest quality international suppliers and benefit from our in-house industry-leading IT platform in the effective management and supply of materials in this sector. By partnering with our customers, the result can lead to a dramatic improvement in supply chain efficiency through our bespoke supply options. We supply to specific aerospace technology approvals.
One of our major advantages is the breadth and variety of product which we stock. Traditionally stockholders specialise in the supply of certain types of metals and plastics. Where Smiths can benefit the customer is in the broad scope of products we make available - we supply in all forms of aluminium, titanium, stainless steels, alloy steels, bronzes, nickels and even some exotics. From ex-stock aluminium products which are often intended for service in the MRO sector, to high-profile aerospace manufacturers such as Boeing and Airbus, Smiths Metal Centres offers impeccable supply credentials.
Smiths are unique in having our own UKAS accredited testing laboratory at our Biggleswade Head Office - this affords numerous benefits to our aerospace customers as we can not only test material on site but also help our customers and resolve problems. All of our stock is barcoded too, which means we offer outstanding levels of product traceability.
We offer in-house processing options - for more information, please refer to our processing services.
