The only stainless steel service center in the UK capable of handling both coil and plate products, OSD displays unique capabilities. OSD UK serves customers from all industry sectors and offers a leading, high-level service offering. OSD stocks and processes products from mills within the Outokumpu group, tailor-made for UK end users and distributors to deliver complete solutions within a wide range of quality standards.

Processing at OSD UK ranges from cut-to-length, polishing, slitting and traverse winding to laser, plasma and water jet. OSD works with austenitic, ferritic and duplex stainless steels in thicknesses of 0.3 mm to 120 mm and widths of 8 mm to 3,000 mm.

Specializing in custom solutions, OSD UK can deliver the complete project to optimize yield and quality standards.
