Steel stockholding is the business of purchasing and storing steel products in a warehouse to meet customer demands. Steel stockholding companies like ourselves typically buy steel products from steel mills and manufacturers.
The stored steel can then be accessed and processed as needed. Steel stockholders can provide additional value-added services such as cutting, welding and fabrication, drilling, shot blasting and coating as required.
Steel stockholding is significant in the steel supply chain, as it ensures customers access to a wide array of steel products when needed. Steel stockholding companies typically work with customers in engineering, construction, manufacturing, and transportation. Steel is used to construct bridges, buildings, automobiles and appliances, powering industries that drive the economy in Ireland and the rest of the world.
