Very few metal stockholders offer in-house laboratory services, but at Smiths, our testing is offered to you as standard

Our services afford numerous benefits to our customers.

Our laboratory is tied in with our quality management system to offer a much broader continuity of service. Speed of response, peace of mind, technical advice from our team of metallurgists – all benefits of our state of the art facility.

We undertake both single-event materials testing and on-going sampling programmes that can be tailored to fit a customer’s requirements. In addition, we are able to offer testing routines for specific customer applications enabling us to offer a supply route for materials with unique certification requirements.

Continuous Investment

Having invested in modern, computer controlled, testing equipment we are able to offer a fast turnaround on most testing requirements. We aim to understand all customer requirements and have experience within a wide range of industries. This gives us the ability to offer all our customers, large and small, a high quality cost-effective service.
