Here at Kloeckner Metals UK we are known for being the largest mill independent, multi-metal stockholder and distributor in the UK, offering innovative value-added services. Our industry expertise in the green goods market allows us to give our customers the highest level of services from start to finish using only the highest quality products.
This month we’re heading to LAMMA 2019, the UK’s leading farm machine, equipment and services show at the NEC in Birmingham. It’s a brilliant opportunity to meet new customers, share our knowledge within the sector and demonstrate how we can help move their businesses forward.
Agriculture and Farming
There are several key areas in agriculture in which Kloeckner Metals UK can support. These include vehicles and vehicle equipment, axle and suspensions, forestry equipment and landscape protection.
Our green goods customers need hard wearing, heavy duty, abrasion resistant materials which are robust enough to endure the rigours of daily work. We stock material of Hardox equivalent including 400HBW, 450HBW, S690 and RQT701.
With Kloeckner’s recent investment in the latest machinery and handling equipment, we have established processing operations which allow us to offer both volume and small batch profiling with a competitive lead time. Our stock profile includes steel sections which can be used to make heavy duty, abrasion resistant frames meaning we can ensure the parts required for machinery are much more durable.

Thanks to the acquisition of our LT14 3D Laser at our Dudley site in 2018, we can offer bespoke services and can process hollow sections, beams, columns, angles, channels and split tees up to 355mm round and 15.5m in length. This size can help with a variety of jobs for green goods such as creating machine trailers and attachments as we are able to cut in one-piece box sections.

We can supply FineXcell high grade tubular products, a weight saving solution which is great for use in green goods, especially within vehicles and their equipment. It’s high strength, fine-grain steel provides the ideal combination of properties for good impact toughness and excellent weldability.
To compliment this, we also offer High Definition Plasma and Oxy-Fuel Profiling processes at our Durham site. The HD plasma profiling machines offer large area cutting with a high level of accuracy up to 80mm thick and our Oxy-Fuel process enables us to cut plates up to 200mm thick. These services are complimented by our on-site drilling and edge preparation abilities.
