Our Head Office is based in London and we are now expanding outside of the UK.
SteelScout offers a supported buying service for customers who utilise steel products but value the efficiency of not having to run their own procurement process. Scout captures the customer’s needs digitally and then matches that enquiry to appropriate suppliers from a growing network of Steel Stockholders/Service Centres. Scout shares the details with the right suppliers digitally, collates the returned offers and provides the customer with one optimised quotation – typically within 90 minutes.
MetalHub is the digital online marketplace for steel, bringing together multiple sellers all on one platform. It is a self-service approach in which Customers browse the material catalogue and can instantly compare lead time, credit terms, delivery charges and unit prices from multiple sellers that can deliver to their location. Customers can build a shopping basket of material made up of elements from different sellers and checkout online to complete their order 24/7 using desktop, tablet or mobile devices.
