Engineering Steels




Our standard product range is impressive, encompassing an exceptionally wide range of carbon and alloy engineering steels including bright drawn, turned bar, hot rolled black bar, and forging billets, all in heat treated condition if required, while non-standards and special items can be supplied rapidly and reliably, demonstrating our renowned flexibility as a steel stockholder.

In fact, by establishing a network of links with an array of leading UK and international steel makers we’re able to source and supply virtually any product, either in long lengths or cut pieces.

Our carbide circular saws and band saws – each one fully automatic – are ranging in capacity from 10 to 558 mm diameter. For sizes above 558 mm we use a subcontractor.

Naturally, we’re committed to supplying quality assured products. We operate a Quality Management System which complies with the requirements of BS EN ISO 9001:2015, supplying prime certified carbon and alloy steels purchased from approved sources. For added assurance a material testing and analysis service is available.

  • Flats – 3mm x 8mm to 50mm x 300mm, 1/16″ x 1/4″ to 3″ x 12″
  • Squares – 6mm to 160mm, 1/4″ to 6 1/4″
  • Hexagon – 13mm to 103mm AF, 1/2″ to 4″ AF
  • Rounds – 2mm to 1000mm, 1/8″ to 12″ diameter
Bar is often purchased from the producer in the heat treated condition.

To make our bar stock more flexible we also use the services of sub-contract heat treatment companies.

We offer bar in the following conditions:

  • Hardened and Tempered to customer requirement
  • Annealed to customer requirement
  • Normalised
  • Stress relieved
We offer turning, boring and trepanning premachined components to the exploration and oil & gas industries. Our techincal sales team can offer an advice on these components.
