The companies have been partners in the U.K. market since September 2017. This latest development seeks to replicate the success of that arrangement, increasing the market penetration of Sandvik’s alloys.

Dave Shollock, sales manager NAFTA for Sandvik, says, “We have recently reviewed the role of our Houston warehouse and feel that partnering with Langley Alloys can improve the market penetration for Sandvik products. They operate a warehouse in nearby Conroe, Houston, as well as Portland, so have the reach, customer relationships and process capability we are looking for in a partner.“

In addition to Sandvik SAF 2507, the partnership will also focus on Sanmac 2205 duplex stainless steel.
