Blackburns is one of the country’s leading nationwide stockholders of aluminium, stainless steel and other semi finished non-ferrous products, composites, acrylic sheet, polypropylene sheet, pvc foam sheet and plastics cleaning & polishing solutions .
In addition, Blackburns Metals is the sole UK distributor for Steel Color – Italy’s leading stainless steel specialists. With advanced technology and unique design and polishing techniques developed by the manufacturer, Blackburns can offer stainless steel sheet in a wide range of colours, patterns, surface finishes and textures not previously available in the UK. Since its launch, SteelColor has already been specified for a wide range of bespoke installations.
Stainless steel is a high quality material that is dimensionally stable, does not rust or stain when exposed to water (as ordinary steel does). It possesses high-level hygienic qualities and great mechanical characteristics. Stainless steel’s inherent properties make it an ideal material for architectural and building applications that include interior and external cladding, signage, decorative and protective panels.
The combination of various colours and satinising finishes (such as mirror, scotch brite, hairline or cross-satinising) increase the options available in the stainless steel range and the addition of embossed patterns or etched texture effects mean the possibilities are only limited by imagination.
The Blackburns name is synonymous with high quality and service levels throughout both industry and the commercial sectors with a reputation for innovative products and supply solutions and the company has a very strong reputation as ‘the raw materials supplier’ to the interior designer, fit-out contractor and shop fitter alike.
In addition to the sheet products, Blackburns also supplies semi-fabricated sign components that include; posts, rails, sign trays that enable sign makers to offer a bespoke product to the customer.
A strategically placed nationwide network of sales and distribution centres provides immediate stock availability and local service, with what is probably the most comprehensive product range and processing capability in the UK. A recent investment at Blackburns’ Kingswinford Service Centre has seen the installation of a brand new CNC Router from AXYZ, which gives improved lead times for all fretwork requirements and ensures that high standards are maintained because this capability is managed ‘in house’
Local stock at Blackburns’ network of Service Centres is enhanced by the central facility in Kingswinford which carries over 10,000 tonnes of material in over 200,000 square feet, all of which is available on a daily basis to each of the centres throughout the UK, ensuring ongoing stock availability.

This, coupled with our new fabrication and processing facilities allows us to supply material closer to final form, providing the option of bespoke sizes and finishes previously unavailable, creating a real opportunity for a ‘one stop shop’.
