All Steels Trading is delighted to announce that we have recently completed the acquisition of Bromford Iron & Steel in West
With a history spanning well over 200 years, Bromford Iron &
Steel has a widespread and highly positive reputation as being a leading producer of hot rolled long
products. Its rolling mills currently employ 38 people at the Oldbury site
where activity in iron and steel processing can be traced back as far as 1610. The company has benefitted from regular and extensive investment in new
plant and technology to ensure that Bromford’s product quality, flexibility and
ability to produce small tonnages notoriously matches world best standards.
As well as
being a leading producer of hot rolled steel profiles for horseshoe manufacture, the company is a major
supplier to other sectors including oil and gas and chain-making. In addition to Bromford’s standard and non-standard range of
flat bars and sections, the business specialises in producing tailor made hot
rolled profiles for countless applications that can eliminate time, labour and
expensive machining costs. Bromford also provides a number of secondary
steel processing services such as pickling and oiling, cold side straightening and heat
The exciting acquisition of Bromford
Iron & Steel offers excellent synergy with All Steels Trading's other UK steel related
businesses, but especially with our Wolverhampton-based Special Steel Sections
re-rolling mill. As a bulk international steel trader, we have the critical mass
to obtain extremely competitive raw materials prices and these price savings
will inevitably enable Bromford to sustainably grow and fulfil capacity.
This major acquisition also confirms All Steels Trading's commitment to supporting
and investing in traditional British industries, and safeguarding a significant
number of UK jobs. We believe British companies in this industry sector are
more than capable of not just supporting domestic steel requirements but
successfully competing on the world stage – and the support of All Steels
Trading and our duo of UK steel manufacturing companies will no doubt
help Bromford to successfully continue to do just that.
