There are no two ways about it, back in 1988 we were a traditional Engineer’s Merchant. We understood engineering and how to cut, form, shape, and weld metal. The world has witnessed an enormous technological shift since then, and we’ve stayed at the forefront of industrial supply by evolving and adapting to new technologies early. Today, we are proud to list customers in a diverse range of industry sectors, including engineering (of course!), manufacturing, pharmaceutical, space technology, hospitality, education, and healthcare to name but a few. The diverse range of products we offer, enables us to be a valuable supply partner in a whole host of settings. The images below will link you to further details of our range.
