Pricing Update

2020 has been an extraordinary year for everyone and the steel industry has, like every industry, been affected by the worldwide pandemic.

After the initial quiet few months of lockdown, there has been a significant bounce-back in demand from the initial impact of the Covid crisis. This has meant that steel mills do not have the capacity to keep up with current demand levels, leading to shortages in the supply chain for many steel products, including pre-painted steel.

Simultaneously, the cost of raw materials used in steel making such as iron-ore have continued to rise as the world moves through the stages of the pandemic.

All steel mills have consequently announced increases in their prices with effect from October 1st and we will be in contact with our customers directly to inform them of the changes this will make to our pricing structure.

We’ve extended our factory!

As part of our ongoing investment plan, in February of this year, we extended our factory by taking on the site next door. We’ve kitted it out with a new crane, a new coil transfer car, a new forklift, more coil storage bays and more sheet racking. It’s meant that we’ve been able to increase our stocks by over 50% giving you much more choice than ever before.

We’re still able to offer all of this choice with our usual high quality delivery service which has stayed exactly the same with same day within the West Midlands and next day nationwide.
