  1. People

Our people make the difference. We only ever employ the right people to do the right job, including experts in product management, structural engineering, operational, logistics, dynamic sourcing, key account contract and project management. Because of this, you can trust them, and us, to always exceed your expectations.

We believe in safety for all stakeholders. At Kloeckner, our principles, values and behaviours are aligned to a safety-first culture. We are a OHSAS 18001 accredited and IOSH charter member, and operate a zero drug and alcohol policy for all our employees. We are proud that we have a great health and safety record and quality record, and one that often results in returning customers.


  1. Material Sourcing, Traceability & Continuity

We understand that the quality and integrity of your steel is a key concern, therefore we are committed to supplying steel and metal from reputable and accredited mill sources across Western Europe. We also provide full visibility and traceability of metals, carry out regular audits of our supply chain and only buy from our approved vendors. And, we never remove distributor names from any distributor sourced test certificate as this would be in breach of our rigorous compliance policies.
