Shawston next day delivery



Shawston Tube was an acquisition made in 2010 following the rapid growth in Shawston sales of EN10255/10217 and API ERW steel tube to both mechanical and fire contractors.  Shawston Tube is now a 20,000 square foot dedicated tube facility with extensive offices, capable of supplying any end type or bespoke length of steel tube in self colour, red, galvanised or special finish. 

There is no ‘middle man’ threading or roll grooving tube on behalf of Shawston Group, it’s all done in-house, which means:

  • Controlled quality with a leak tightness warranty available.

  • Control over the cost of tube processing.

  • Unlike many of our competitors we are not at the mercy of a large manufacturer dictating prices to us.

  • An ability to collaborate with contractors on large projects.

  • Ability to cut to desired length +/- 1mm tolerance where required.
