Metal Supermarkets is the world’s largest small-quantity metal supplier. With over 100 locations across four countries, its stores offer fast and easy access to any metal, any size, cut and ready fast! Since 1985, Metals Supermarkets has been the convenience store for metal.

Stores stock over 8,000 types, shapes and grades of metal, and cut materials to customers’ exact specifications. Whether it’s cold-rolled steel, hot-rolled steel, galvanized steel or tool steel, the brand’s large product offerings mean every customer is accounted for. Every day, businesses across many industries require metal to operate, and Metal Supermarkets stores provide that metal, delivering speed, variety and convenience when shopping for metal.
For over 35 years, its proven, stable business system has helped to carve out a niche in the multi-billion-dollar metal distribution industry, serving customers ignored by large distributors. The metal supplying brand also stands out for its commitment to world-class customer service. Customers love the brand because of its metal knowledge and commitment to getting them exactly the metal they need.
