Coil Steel Supply needed

Post by BigDee » Wed Dec 11, 2019 3:20 pm

Looking for a channel, contact, supplier or any information related to importing 10-ton 1220mm wide coils of cold rolled thin gauge steel out of Thailand, Vietnam even China.
We currently buy cut to size and are told coils of this size can not be transported or they don’t have the means.
Any help putting me in touch with a new supply line and or just comments of your experiences would be appreciated.

Thanks Dee

A member by the handle of @Mishmash might have a clue, or not. He's been quiet for the past couple of weeks though.

While we are on the subject; Does anyone know if any high quality roofing iron is available here at realistic prices?
I am thinking of something like australian BHP/BlueScope, Colorbond corrugated sheets. Thnx.


(ps, yeah i miss Mish ^^ - my favourite fellow overposter who i love disagreeing with about nearly everything.
Where are you Mish? I hope nobody has shot you yet - i was going to borrow your gun and do it myself. :mrgreen: )

Your best bet is to ask them directly and get the contact details for their agent, if any, in Cambodia. Or become their agent and get rich.

Once the TH/KH rail connection starts operating on a regular basis, a 10 tonne roll should not be a problem. Alternatively, have custom weight/length rolls made to suit your requirement and MHE capacities.

Thanks D+. Do you know if they do coated, high quality, roofing steel by chance?
ColourBond in Cambodia is too expeno for me - especially small orders out of the big cities, i suspect.
-but the local stuff they use for residential dwellings seems to be very low grade.
I'm wondering if there is anything in-between maybe. Widely available ??
