Metapic Ltd

Established in 1960 METAPIC Ltd are the UK's no 1 provider of outsourced acid immersion pickling / descaling, and cleaning services from our own 2 acre site & works in Chesterfield, Derbyshire at the centre of the UK. The company and its employees have a wealth of practical knowledge and technical experience in all aspects of acid immersion pickling, industrial metals cleaning and associated services.

Our considerable experience in this specialised field is based on nearly 50 years of continuously serving customers in a wide range of industries as a key part of a number of demanding industrial supply chains centered around the Oil, Gas and Energy Production Sectors, including the past and current UK Nuclear Industry supply chain, as well as key Aerospace Customers, together with a wide range of Stainless Steel and Special Metal Fabricators and Heavy Engineering companies.

As well as a diverse group of special metals producers and stock holders located through out the UK who all benefit from the quickest, most convenient and cost effective quality assured acid immersion services available. This means they avoid the "headache", bother and considerable expense of having to set up and become directly involved in treating their own products with difficult and potentially very hazardous acid processes "in house" themselves with all the potential risk for accidents and consequential losses such operations can potentially incurr and entail.

Essentially Metapic make acid immersion processes, and the cleaning, and restoration of the special properties of your own valuable special metal products, easy, safe, reliable, very convient and highly cost effective. This means you can rest assured that your products will always perform as designed and intended becuase you have the confidence to know that they have always all been properly and consistently pickled, passivated, or cleaned acording to the correct agreed specification by Metapic Ltd to optimise the maximum service life and performance of your own products.

As a matter of routine we manage all our potentially hazardous acid and chemical processes on our Enviroment Agency IPPC licenced site in Chesterfield, in a responsible and enviromentally sustainable way in accordance with the latest standards, and best practice.
