Buyers of stainless steel hollow bar in the UK have historically been limited to a very small number of suppliers. Amodil Supplies Ltd aims to remedy this situation by investing in substantial stocks of stainless steel hollow bar, which will be held in their warehouses near Kidderminster in the Midlands and Manchester in the NW of England. The hollow bar is produced to ASTM A511 and is dual-certified 304/304L, and 316/316L. However, more importantly, all the material is âMecatex,â? the improved machinability steel of Tubacex Tubos Inoxidables SA of Spain. Amodil believes that being able to demonstrate cost savings in this highly competitive sector will lead to an increase in size of the hollow bar market in the UK and they are positioning themselves to become a leading supplier of this product. Supporting Amodil to achieve this objective is one of the leading suppliers of seamless tubular products in the world, Tubacex Tubos Inoxidables SA. Amodil are able to supply the complete Tubacex production range of hollow bar, which is 32 mm OD to 250 mm OD in 304/304L and 316/316L.
