BSS Steel Strip was formed around 15 years ago when I left the Steel manufacturing industry after 27 years, during which time I worked in every department from the steel melting shop, rolling mills, and final processing sections through to despatch and logistics. Finally I “hung up my overalls”, put on a suit and moved in to sales. Since that time I have worked with spring steel strip producers from within the UK, Italy, Spain, Germany, Switzerland and The USA. During my “suit” years, I realised that there was a gap in the market for the supply of small quantities of spring steel. The mills require large orders and even many of the stockholders have minimum orders that are prohibitive. So I hung up the suit, and started BSS to concentrate on supplying spring steel to a marketplace that needed a fast and flexible supplier.
Today BSS operate from a unit in Rotherham which is only 5 minutes from junction 34 on the M1 with good links to a Nationwide distribution. We have extensive inventories of spring steel strip and sheet in the hardened and tempered,and annealed conditions, in carbon and stainless grades. We are able to offer a next day despatch (or same day despatch on most orders before noon). Our couriers guarantee next day delivery, and use computerised tracking systems to follow your order through to delivery.We are also happy for you to collect (by arrangement). To support our growing customer base, we have added a range of spring steel flat bar and tool steel sheet to our stock.
We have arrangements with two steel manufacturers to enable us to offer larger production quantities of spring steels, at more competitive prices, but with longer lead times. Finally we are able to supply laser cut profiles, and offer small batch production of finished springs to your drawings.
We are not a general steel stockholder and cannot supply structural steels, re-bar, galvanised, beams etc. We believe that a “catch all” stockholder cannot be the best at everything. We concentrate on being the best at what we know, and we know spring steel. If you need to speak with someone who knows spring steel, and can offer advice and support, call BSS.
