About SM Thompson Ltd

Our 69 year old track record in meeting the steel requirements of our many customers in local industry stands us in good stead. Each year brings fresh challenges as the needs of the welding industry continually evolve in an ever changing world. Meeting these challenges means ever increasing flexibility in working practices, larger ranges of materials in stock and the employment of ever more sophisticated machinery to meet the demands imposed upon us.

Last year saw the installation of our first precision plasma bevelling and marking machine, which has already had a significant impact on the range of cutting we can offer our customers. Our policy remains to constantly improve the range of performance, being a family company we can respond readily to market place changes.

Above all, our long standing commitment to provide responsibility, genuine care and courtesy remains in place.
