Established in 1977, Charles Day (Steels) Ltd started as provider of flame cutting services. Since then Charles Day has evolved into one of the largest and most diverse profile cutting companies in the UK.
Our state-of-the-art cutting facility is based in Sheffield, the city of steel and just minutes away from the birthplace of stainless steel.
We understand that you need receive your product as quickly as possible. Short lead times is one of the many things that set us apart from our competitors. Some of the ways we strive to reduce lead times include:
We continually invest in new machinery not only to increase capacity but also ensure we are using the latest technology.
We maintain impressive stock levels of popular materials and thicknesses. Failing that, we can usually source plate and sheet within 48 hours.
24/7 unmanned operation with automatic plate loading and unloading enables us to cut throughout the night. Automatic plate loading means our lasers spend more time cutting and less time loading.
A combination of our in-house vehicle fleet and our close relationship with carefully chosen couriers, ensures your product arrives where and when you want it to.
Regardless of who you are or the industry you work within, we can provide a sub-contract cutting service to suit your needs. We support an exhaustive and diverse list of industries.
Each day 100s of metal fabricators, engineers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) rely on Charles Day to support their services.
We've cut profiles that have been used on bridges, buildings, sculptures and even within the medical profession.
