About Smiths Metal Centres
Smiths Metal Centres is a multi-metal stockholder supplying a wide range of engineering materials to global industry
Our customers operate in a wide variety of sectors and often have differing purchasing requirements. Our aim is to offer all our customers, from the small machine shop to the large multinational corporation, a supply path that continuously provides the highest levels of service, quality and value.
Our service ethos starts with a network of local service centres across the UK that allows us to form close working relationships with all of our
customers. We then combine this with a highly organised, process driven, order fulfilment system. This robust approach gives consistently high levels
of service but it also allows us to implement customer-specific requirements in any aspect of order fulfilment and stock management.
We regard quality as the foundation upon which our business is built. Our Quality Management System is an integral part of all our business processes and we only deal with metal and plastic producers that share our vision. Traceability and product certification are a fundamental part of what we do
and to back up this approach, we are unique in our sector to have our own in-house UKAS accredited materials testing laboratory. This allows us to
provide rapid technical support whenever it is required.
Our aim is to make material supply chains as efficient and cost effective as possible without ever sacrificing service and quality levels. Our wide stock range and fast delivery means our customers can make immediate savings by reducing their own raw materials stock (sometimes down to zero). In
addition, we have a range of value adding supply options that can lead to further, often significant, savings in the cost of raw material procurement.
