Company Details

Our company has a long history and a pivotal role in today’s market place.

Stemcor’s History

Stemcor was formed in London in 1951 and is an international steel trader, distributer and stockholder. The privately-owned company is an independent trader meaning it is not owned by, nor does it control, any steel producers. This independence ensures that the Group is objective in matching exact customer needs in terms of quality, specifications, financial terms and delivery.

Stemcor in Today’s Marketplace

Stemcor’s philosophy is to work using small, self-contained trading units, each with its own management and clearly defined areas of responsibility. Our local presence in the regions in which we trade allows for the nurturing of close relations with producers and customers, a vital requirement in the trading world. In addition, this international network allows us to bring together customers and sellers in different parts of the world by offering global solutions for their requirements.
