COBI Trading Ltd, global suppliers of steel for manufacturers and owners of MLB Steel, has acquired Anglian Metal Deck

Anglian Metal Deck Limited (AMD) was established in 2017, by Marcel Dutil, chairman of Canam Group Inc, Canada. With headquarters and operations based in Sudbury, Suffolk, AMD manufactures innovative steel decking for the construction industry.

As a division of Canam Steel Inc, the company’s advanced roll-forming machinery is capable of high-speed output enabling manufacture for just in time delivery or short notice orders.

New employment appointments

A new general manager Damien Hartshorne, previously of Rapid Metal Deck, and new sales manager, Matt Hickman, previously of Albion Sections, have both been appointed to help strengthen the existing operational staff who will remain in place.

The acquisition complements the portfolio of MLB Steel Ltd, (formerly Metsec Lattice Beams), a rapidly growing designer and manufacturer of structural steel.

Based in the West Midlands, the company has a history that spans over 75 years, during which time it has supplied most of the UK’s leading construction companies.

Investing in its portfolio

Chad Ward, COBI CEO, said: “Our vision as a group of companies is to provide the very best end-to-end service and highest quality product portfolio to the UK construction industry.

“Our continued commitment to invest in our portfolio and client services will ensure our customers across the group have access to a full range of products and cost-effective solutions for all their construction requirements under one group of companies.”

In September 2020, Chad Ward, CEO of COBI Solutions Ltd and MLB Steel Ltd acquired Anglian Metal Deck.
