It's What We Do
ASC Metals Ltd began trading in 1979 and opened its first warehouse in Northampton in June 1980.
The company became well known for service, reliably and quality and over the next 10 years grew by opening more warehouses in Lincoln, Peterborough, Sheffield and Wolverhampton.
During this time the company purchased land and built purpose built premises in strategically suitable locations to service our customers and to expand the business.
We also invested heavily in processing machines, giving us in house control to maintain and improve our levels of service even further.
In 1996, for commercial reasons, the owners agreed to an amicable decision to demerge the business. The split being Lincoln & Sheffield as one company, servicing the North which left Wolverhampton, Northampton and Peterborough to service the Midlands and South.
In 2001 we, the southern business, acquired Nextday Metals, based in Lowestoft, which unfortunately was then closed in 2012. In 2016 we rebranded the whole group to trade as “NEXTDAYMETALS”, which, quite simply, had been the company’s policy from day one and still is to this day.
We have continued to invest in new equipment, technology and vehicles with an approximate spend of over £1million over the past 2 years to put us in the strongest position possible to continue our success in the years to come.
The business is still privately owned by the original founder and our mission statement “to offer the best service and support to our customers” remains unchanged.
Each depot is a recognised non ferrous metal stockholder with quality products, facilities and customer services available to all. As a metal stockist we offer a wide range of stainless steel sheets, aluminium sheets, bars, and tubing, as well as copper, bronze, and brass. Please choose your depot location below to read more information on the facilities and services available.
We have recently upgraded our ISO 9001 standard approval to “ISO 2008 International Standard” which demonstrates our professionalism and experience within the Metal Suppliers market.
NextDay Metals offers a guaranteed next day delivery service and we aim to serve customers within an hour’s journey from each of our depots. Our no frills and no false promises philosophy means you can rely on us to meet your delivery deadlines without compromise.
Utilising our own fleet of vehicles, ASC Metals focuses on providing a first class delivery service to all of our customers. Our ISO 2008 international standard accreditation enables a more efficient method of receiving and dispatching orders which in turn assists in reducing delivery time – guaranteed.
