A supply route for every industry

We are smarter than your average stockholder with a sizeable volume of certifications & approvals to substantiate this claim.

We have supply approvals from the world's major OEMs across a wide range of industries including aerospace, defence and energy. Our systems cater for the unique requirements of each approval and our stock range includes products that are specifically certified for use in these industries.

Our approvals apply to both divisions and the local service centres of Smiths and course, our central Head Office too.

Investment in Training

Our salespeople are trained and well versed in the products we sell, a feat in itself considering the variety of metal products our business stocks.

Where expert input is required, we also have specialists in particular fields such as aerospace, oil and gas, plastics etc. We know all about our products and their suitability for particular applications.

We pass this critical awareness onto our customers. We use our knowledge to make you aware of products which will serve your purpose for the applications required.

Once a batch of material has passed through our goods-in procedures, every transaction in its time with us is recorded. We know what it is, where it's come from, what's processes it's been through and where it is in our warehouse network.

Quality Approvals

Our approvals can be both industry and company specific.

For example, we have over 40 approvals with Smiths Advanced Metals alone with companies such as AgustaWestland, Airbus and Cosworth Racing. We are also an ISO 9001:2000 accredited business.

The number of approvals we hold is indicative of our expertise and knowledge and demonstrates our commitment in providing excellence in the field of effective material supply.
