We are incredibly proud of our latest drilling machinery, with this we can offer steel plate drilling services on site; we are able to drill up to 34mm dia and bore up to 101mm dia in plates up to 160mm thick!

At the exhibition we will have all the information on our drill and you'll be able to ask us all about it!

2. Newest range of steel grades available 

Brown McFarlane is one of the world's leading steel plate stockists and processors, meaning that we are continually expanding our product range. We've expanded both our Carbon Steel Plate and Stainless Steel Plate ranges over the last year to include grades such as 321 and 321H as well as Weathering steel grades such as EN10025 S355J2W+N and EN10025 S355K2W+N.
