Alstain Metal Services Ltd was formed in the late 1980's to meet the challenges that those years posed for our industry. It was a time of recession, when the majority of stockholders were going through a period of contraction and centralization. A large number of local branches were closed throughout the region, with the main warehouses reducing their product range and increasing both their small quantity and minimum order charges in an effort to increase efficiency. Buyers were finding it more and more difficult to locate the products they needed and were having to place larger orders at higher prices and longer delivery times with several suppliers.
It was and still is Alstain Metal Services Ltd aim to fill the corporate void by offering as wide a stock range as possible with quick delivery and at competitive prices. We remain committed to ensuring that the customer gets the best deal possible, and it is this dedication and our reputation on which the business has been built.
What other stockholders class as "specials", Alstain stock as standards. We pride ourselves on stocking the broadest range of products at the best possible prices and we will almost certainly be able to fill your requirements. In addition to the everyday products you would expect us to stock, we carry a wide variety of Non standards: unequal angles, channels , t-sections, cold drawn flats and squares, heavy hot rolled flats and squares, jig wire, shim, sheet, tube and pipe. If we don't have it in stock, our experienced staff will help source it for you.
