Choosing steel stockholders
Steel stockholders may be companies, organisations, or even individuals who are in the business of buying and selling steel to other companies, organisations, or individuals, particularly in engineering, automobile manufacture and so on. The delivery of steel may be to a particular location or site, or it may be delivered to the doorstep of the customer.
There are a number of other services, which are often provided by such steel stockholders, with steel profiling being the most prominent one. Steel profiling refers to the cutting of steels into specific shapes and sizes determined by customers to meet their requirements.
Some steel stockholders may also offer a number of other services such as; painting, shot blasting, drilling, cutting, etc. They should also ensure that testing has been performed to maintain the quality of steel and provide the customers with a reliable product.

- Equal or unequal angles.
- Bearing plates.
- Parallel flanges / channels.

- Hot finished circles, squares or rectangles.
As there are a huge variety of stockholders in the market, it is of crucial importance to perform extensive research into prospective stockholders and their business background and history before choosing them. Not only do you have to ensure that the product that they are offering is of top quality, but also that they have appropriate licenses. Seeking information from their existing clients can be a great help in making an assessment.
