About Us


Your Metals Management Specialist

Orchard Materials is one of the UK’s leading Metals Management Specialists, supplying high integrity metals for use in hostile and safety critical environments. When the metal has to be guaranteed to industry or customer specific standards, Orchard is able to demonstrate the real value of its service and the reality of its claim to be a true specialist and not just another ‘metal stockholder’. Over the years we have built up a detailed and comprehensive understanding of the standards involved in metal specifications and we are able to provide a ‘single source’ project management service for complex orders. We understand the requirements of supplying a high integrity metals service, and our business has been built on engendering trust and confidence amongst our customers so that they can rely on us to guarantee that all our materials will be tested and certificated to the required standards.
