New Bohler Uddeholm Specialty Metals Division

04 Jul 2016

The BÖHLER portfolio of Corrosion Resistant Alloy (CRA) products in bar, billet, sheet, plate and forgings for the Oil & Gas, Chemical Processing (CPI) & Energy industries was partnered with the seamless tube & pipe products in stainless, duplex, super duplex & exotic grades, previously branded Schoeller Bleckmann UK on 4th April 2016. 


The new Specialty Metals Division is headed up by Richard Kendall, who explains the rebranding strategy, “the rebrand of the Schoeller Bleckmann business will harness our group strength. Our reputation for quality is built on our technical capability and continued investment in new products and testing facilities, this will further strengthen our strategy to offer the best products and the best service across each of our industry sectors”.


With over 40 years’ experience in the supply of stainless, duplex, super duplex & exotic grades of seamless tube & pipe, Bohler-Uddeholm Specialty Metals is even better placed to provide the great service that customers have come to expect.  Already the UK’s largest stockist and supplier of seamless tube and pipe, recent investment in a Kasto Automated Modular Distribution System in their warehouse facility in Oldbury, West Midlands means they are even better placed to service customer needs. Day to day contacts have not changed, the same experienced UK based team will continue to work with existing mill partners. 


The new business is part of the Special Steel Division, part of the voestalpine Group, a steel-based technology and capital goods group that operates worldwide. With an emphasis on high quality products, the Group is one of the leading partners to the automotive and consumer goods industries in Europe.


“Whether you’re operating in Oil & Gas, Chemical, Desalination, Petrochemical, Power Generation or Nuclear markets, our aim is to be your preferred partner in the areas that matter to you”, explains Kendall.
