A Steel Supplier is a company that stocks, constructs, supplies and distributes a variety of steel products to its consumer.
Steel Suppliers play a vital role in the Steel Industry with over 65% of structural steel within the UK is supplied via a Steel Stockholder.
A Steel Stockholder can supply any quantity and mix of steel required for a project and can supply a variety of products including heavy structural sections, hot rolled and cold formed structural steel products, universal beams, columns plate and bespoke finished products. All steel products supplied must fall in line with the Construction Products Regulation policies (CPR). Meaning all aluminium and structural steel must show the CE Marking. This marking shows compliance with EN 1090 – 1 (The European standard that applied to structural metalwork).
The majority of steel suppliers have on-site tools and machinery to construct products before distributing to its customer. This is a huge benefit as it means strict deadlines can be met with a fast turnaround as all work is carried out under one roof. Steel Suppliers are able to offer steel processing to your exact specification. Cut to length, punched or fabricated to manufacture exactly to customer drawings and specifications. This service provides customers with the highest quality steel products.
On average the timescale from design to delivery is around 10 working weeks. This gives enough time for the Steel Supplier to resolve any design queries with the consumer, model and detail the steel work, complete the fabrication process to then deliver the steel works to the construction site.
