Founded in 1932, Maher Limited is a steel stockholder and processor specialising in high-strength, high-performance alloys. After almost 80 years of trading, Maher remains family-owned and independent, allowing it to forge close relationships with the customer base and offer personalised and flexible service.

Maher’s customer base spans a number of industries including Oil and Gas, Power Generation, Aerospace and the Naval and Marine sector. Supported by both customer and industry approvals including ISO 9001, BAE Systems (Marine) and Cameron (Leeds), we deliver into the full supply chain, from the OEMs to the valve, pump and fastener manufacturers. This diversity of industry and customer type means that Maher has a full understanding of a range of customer requirements.

Maher holds a comprehensive range of nickel and copper based alloys including K500, 400, 625, 718 and 833 (full details on We understand that the industries demand fast deliveries therefore we offer same and next day despatches for stock items. With NDT facilities on-site, Maher can also offer Ultrasonic and Dye Penetrant testing according to both customer and national specifications.

Thanks to its long tradition of metalworking, Maher has developed close relationships with local forges, grinders and NADCAP approved laboratories, allowing us to offer a range of shapes and sizes to numerous specifications. This is further enhanced by our in-house machining capacity which has recently seen significant investment. Along with first stage machining, we are now able to offer semi-finished and finished components such as valve stems, flanges and tubing hangers.

As recognised by our approvals, quality has long been at the heart of the Maher company ethos. When combined with the organisation’s resolve to improve and grow, this base attribute has led to Maher becoming Tier 2 members of the University of Sheffield’s AMRC (Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre). Based in the Rolls-Royce Factory of the future, the AMRC researches and provides solutions to production issues within manufacturing, and is also a leader in the development of innovative improvements to manufacturing techniques. December 2009 saw the launch of the Nuclear AMRC, also to be based in Sheffield. Maher is pleased to be the first Tier 2 member of this new organisation, placing us at the forefront of what will be an important industry in the coming years.

We are proud to be the first metals stockholder in the BVAA and look forward to a long collaboration with the Association’s members, both as a materials supplier and provider of technical support through our internal resources and close links with centres of manufacturing excellence.
