Welcome to Shawston

Shawston is one of the UK’s largest privately owned distributors of steel tubes, fittings, valves & pipe supports with close to 50 years experience operating within these market places.

Our reputation for outstanding customer service has allowed us to benefit from substantial growth over the last 10-years.

All profits have been re-invested in the business to facilitate branch openings, increased stock, staff and delivery vehicles. With just 13 staff 10 years ago, we now have over 80 employees and 5 branches nationwide.

With supply chains direct with manufacturers across the world, we have eradicated the need for unnecessary premiums and unassociated costs. This enables us to offer fixed prices for large projects or bulk commitments.

Specialists in Fire Protection and Mechanical Engineering products.
