voestalpine Metsec plc is the UK’s largest specialist cold roll-forming company, providing products for the construction and manufacturing industries
Based in Sandwell, voestalpine Metsec plc focuses on adding value through expert design, precision manufacturing and on-time, in-full product delivery.
Established more than 85 years ago as a cold roll forming company, Metsec provides purlins, steel framing, cable management, dry lining and custom roll forming to its broad range of customers. Originally founded in 1931, it is now part of the metal forming division of voestalpine group, a global technology and capital goods group.
Headquartered in Oldbury, and with a sales and technical office in the Middle East, Metsec has supplied products and design services to landmark projects including the Queensferry Crossing, Abu Dhabi airport, Resorts World, Wimbledon, BBC Wales studios and Glasgow Velodrome along with a host of retail sites, sports stadia, hotels and student accommodation.
A champion of Building Information Modelling (BIM), Metsec holds BIM Level 2 accreditation, the first tier two designer and manufacturer to achieve the standard for design and construction in the UK. In addition, last year Metsec was announced as one of the first six companies globally to achieve the new PAS 1192-2 kitemark from the British Standards Institution (BSI) relating to BIM, and the only tier two company to be awarded the accreditation.
The kitemark is a way for construction businesses around the world prove their capabilities in delivering projects at the design and construction phase and acts as a seal of approval for companies qualified to deliver projects at both the design and construction phase.
