Why are we so different?

Smiths Advanced Metals is a Premium Multi Metal Stockholder Our organsisation benefits greatly from being centrally operated, which offers cost benefits that can be passed onto our customers

Although out business operates with 18 individual service centres, our entire operation is managed via our central hub at Biggleswade.

This passes on cost efficiency and savings because all departmental tasks are undertaken centrally i.e. one HR department, one accounts department and so on. This can be done by virtue of our industry leading bespoke management software which is networked across all Smith Metal Centre sites.

We also benefit from shared investment. All stock is received and stored centrally with daily trunking of material products to the various service centre's around the UK. This philosophy ensures that stock availability is highly effective and we are able to manage stock efficiently from a central location.


By operating on the basis of sharing central costs and shared investment, we are able to keep an efficient operating budget which allows us to pass these cost benefits on to our customers in the form of competitive pricing structures.
