Saving you money

We demonstrate the true cost of engineering raw material supply in today's market

In the modern world, there tends to be a fixation on price which dictates whether a good deal is to be made. However, in engineering materials, the physical raw material cost is only one aspect of a much more complex equation. And combining these elements into a single, bespoke solution can make actual savings.

Savings Explained

In this sections we cover:

  • Through cost savings
  • How in-house processing adds value
  • How bespoke systems are a game-changer
  • What all these aspects mean to you
Through Cost Savings

Buying raw materials from Thames allows you to benefit directly from through-cost savings. This is because the sheer broadness of the product we supply means that our materials are much closer to the finished item you wish to purchase. Our product thicknesses are extraordinarily close or match your finished requirements. Due to the permutations of different sizes and lengths, we also minimise wastage. These result in cost savings for your business, regardless of the raw material purchase price.

Added Value Processing

Having the ability to process your materials before supply means that you receive engineering products which are closer to your requirements. We take this one step further with first stage engineering - where we engineer your material to give you a head start in the fabrication process.

Effective Systems

Our bespoke IT platform allows us to offer you service otherwise unavailable from a standard stockholder. We provide you with a wide range of customised supply options, which include bespoke labelling and consolidated invoicing that will save you time and money. We also give you secure access and instant visibility to our systems so you can forward order, track deliveries and review our stock.


These are just a few of the many cost savings we can offer you by implementing a bespoke supply solution. The reality is that even with a simple supply package, you will instantly benefit from our broad stock range, product consistency and rapid delivery times. Working with Thames Stockholders will save you money and provide you with a competitive advantage.
