Providing customers with an unrivalled copper range and industry-leading service
We are the UK’s leading copper specialist. Our products include copper busbars, busbar fabricated components, copper machined components, sheet, coil, free-machining copper and exotic copper alloys. We work in partnership with our customers, offering a fast and efficient service.
Metelec UK is part of Gindre Duchavany, Europe’s largest manufacturer of copper extruded bars. Our relationship with Gindre allows us to provide extensive product capacity to meet our customers’ growing needs.
We are one of the UK’s largest stockholders of copper bars, busbars, copper profiles and copper components.
With a turnover of more than £30 million, we are a trusted supply chain partner to a growing number of switchgear specialists. We serve a wide variety of sectors including general construction, hospitals, commercial buildings and data centres.
At the heart of our success is continuous investment in facilities. In 2021 we invested £250,000 in new punching and bending machinery. In 2023 there will be a further six-figure investment in state-of-the-art CNC bending machinery. Investing in specialist machinery is supporting the rapid growth of our components business.
We recognise that product quality is paramount to our customers. All stock items are traceable back to producer certification in accordance with BSEN ISO 9002:Pt2 2015.
In 2020 Metelec established an EU base in Ireland. This is important and allows us to manage tariffs following Brexit. We continue to invest in our commitment to the Irish market.
