About the ASA
Members of the Aluminium Stockholders Association act as a link between the mill producers of aluminium rolled and extruded products and the customers, such as the automotive and aviation industries.
The stockholders usually offer not just aluminium products but also stainless steels, copper alloys and specialist alloys such as titanium and nickel. The larger stockholders can also offer plain carbon and alloy steels and plastics. All of these products are available in quantities and to exact specifications to match immediate production requirements with just-in-time deliveries.
Stockists pride themselves on being able to meet their customers' constantly changing needs, holding a wide variety of products - in both standard alloys, sizes and shapes and also special items to meet individual needs. At any one time, ASA members hold over 30,000 tonnes of stock ready for immediate supply from a warehouse system covering all of the UK.
Members separately, and through the ASA's various committees, actively seek to improve individual businesses and to develop the UK aluminium stockholding industry. The ASA also plays an active part in organisations such as the Aluminium Federation in promoting the use of aluminium products in a wide range of end uses.
The ASA members operate within a strict Code of Conduct that ensures continuity of supply, high standards and quality systems.
