Our Team


We would like to thank Alchemy Metals for the high level of service they have provided us with over the last few years, everyone at Alchemy has always been helpful and responded well to our requests when required.

Working with Alchemy Metals over the years has been a privilege, they have been very helpful and supportive with all of our needs. I have checked pricing with other companies and they have not been beaten, not just on price but also their service. They have been true to their word and I would highly recommend them.

I have dealt with the Alchemy Metals group for many years and find their service cannot be matched - 100% honesty, integrity and traceability from start to finish. I would highly recommend them to any UK manufacturer.
