Special Profiles

Our range of special profiles is used to make components for a wide range of industries. We can roll profiles up to a maximum of 260kg/metre – from simple profiles with non-standard dimensions, to highly complex and asymmetrical shapes.

We have roll design and machining capability to create the rolls and tooling necessary to manufacture special profiles. This includes unique ‘reserved’ profiles which have been designed for individual customer needs and ‘open’ roll which are available to all customers.

We develop long-term relationships with our customers to develop and modify the profile ranges they require. We can also offer additional processing including cold sawing to exact length, shotblasting and painting, a range of fabrication and machining operations.
