Due to increased demand, Masteel UK Limited has increased the company's stockholding in Singapore to provide even more efficient turnaround for their customer base.
In July 2010, Masteel announced that they would be stocking high quality steel plate in Singapore for the first time. This commitment had been driven by market forces with clients looking for our support in providing a local supply source for high quality steel material.
Since the announcement, the company's stock has been continually replenished to the point where Masteel have now decided to increase the stockholding even further.
Patrick Lim, General Manager at Masteel Asia Pacific, states that "the decision to increase stock in Singapore clearly demonstrates increased customer demand for high specification and pre-tested steel plates which can be shipped immediately. With UK stock support also available for certain grades, this facility enables us to effectively service contracts throughout the Far East".
The type of steel grades available ex-stock, remain unchanged. Examples of their stock plates in Singapore include:
- ASTM A / ASME SA516 Grade 70
- ASTM A / ASME SA516 Grade 60
- EN 10028 P355 NL1
- BS 1501 224 490B LT50
The plates are supplied in normalised condition and are impact tested to -50° C. Hardness testing is according to NACE MR 0715 and NACE MR 0103. All the plates they keep stock in Singapore are of Western European origin and are provided with mill certification EN10204.3.1
