Murray Plate

Murray Plate - which encompasses Tipton & Mill Steels and Northern Steel Stocks - are one of the UK’s largest steel plate suppliers, with an extensive stockholding operation backed by a comprehensive service and processing offering.

We stock a wide range of grades of steel plate and strip, including boilerplate and weathering steel, to allow us to fulfil both long-term supply contracts and ex-stock short lead time orders. Our steel is sourced from high-quality mills within our long-established global supplier network and mill certification is available on all grades.

Mill certified steel plate is stocked in standard sizes from 2m x 1m up to 12m x 3m and in thicknesses from 2mm to 360mm. Longer plates are available from fast track mill rollings. We also stock a selection of non-standard sizes, along with lab certified plate - which can be a more cost-effective choice of materials for some applications. 

Our service offering includes cutting, drilling, shot-blasting & primer painting, pickling & oiling, full profiling and testing to ensure your steel plate is delivered in the form you need it and meets all your quality requirements. We are ISO 9001 and CE Execution Class 4 accredited for our in-house processing operation.
