The NewMet Group has been in business for more than 60 years. Our product range has developed during that period to continue to meet the requirements of the principal industries with which we trade, and increasingly we have moved into manufacturing our own products.

Throughout those years we have built a reputation for understanding the material requirements of our customers and fulfilling their needs promptly and efficiently.

The company has grown both organically and through acquisition, adding new businesses which align themselves to our areas of technical expertise and the needs of our customers.
