Unrivalled Supply Partner


USP Steels Ltd is a steel sheet and plate stockholder based in the West Midlands.

USP Steels was originally formed as a division of United Steels Group. The business was launched by Glyn Costigan in October 2008 with the objective of developing a market share in a largely unexplored sector by the group at that point.

A capital investment programme facilitated the instalment of a plate line, this allowing the business to offer its customers a unique facility and product range, the first of its kind in the UK.

USP Steels special relationship with the United Group provides access to an impressive range of processing equipment, warehousing and logistics facilities.

We are extremely passionate and driven for corporate and individual success whilst maintaining integrity in our relationships with all business partners based on a reputation for providing guaranteed quality of product through our primary supply partner Swedish Steel, efficient next day delivery service and distribution nationwide.
