SteelScout's revolutionary metal buying platform impresses buyers at Northern Manufacturing and Electronics 2019

  • Online platform allows time-constrained SMEs to quickly get the best deal
  • SteelScout compares quotes from more than 90 suppliers, delivering customers the best deal in as little as 20 minutes
  • Customers can build quotes online in minutes for a range of metals including steel, aluminium and yellow metals

SteelScout, the UK’s premier online metal-sourcing platform, attended Northern Manufacturing and Electronics this week (2-3 October) to show visitors how they can save time and money when purchasing steel, aluminium and yellow metals.

Using unique technology and a team of highly skilled metal-buying specialists, SteelScout gathers and compares quotes from a network of more than 90 suppliers to give its customers the best available deal. All SteelScout customers need to do is complete a short online form and await a tailored quotation to arrive in their inbox in as little as 20 minutes.

At Northern Manufacturing and Electronics, visitors to the SteelScout stand were able to receive a one-to-one demonstration of the SteelScout platform, as well as understand the cost and time-saving that the service can help them achieve.

Matt Yeates, Managing Director of SteelScout, said, “The North of England is a hub of manufacturing and industry, with a large number of highly productive SMEs continuously looking for further efficiencies in their operations. Typically, materials buying within these companies is one of many jobs delegated to a single person in the business, which can mean compromises in searching for the best deal. SteelScout does all the hard work for its customers, saving them time and, more importantly, money.”

“We’re delighted to have had the chance to introduce our highly innovative SteelScout platform to a new audience at Northern Manufacturing and Electronics 2019, earlier this week with very positive feedback as customers appreciate how digital solutions could add value for them."

SteelScout supplies a range of metals including mild steel, stainless steel, aluminium, bronze and copper. It can supply all shapes and grades, including beams, box section, sheet, plate, flat bar, channels and angles.
