Prime Steel was founded in Barcelona, Spain in 2000 as a trading and wholesale distribution company of steel products; raw material, semis and finished products. It is based in the Port of Tarragona, right on the docks with its premises covering a total area of 8.000 sqm.

 

Since its inception, Prime Steel has developed a sales network in the whole Iberian Peninsula and established a vast list of satisfied clients both in Spain and France and Portugal, its main markets. The majority its clients are end-users in a wide range of industrial sectors.

 

During all these years of activity, Prime Steel has also forged very close long-term professional relationships with reliable and quality-oriented producers worldwide for the benefit of its customers.

 

In 2008, Prime Steel has installed a state-of-the-art cold forming hollow section welding line called FCF (flexible cold forming) at its premises in Tarragona Port enabling the company to deliver smaller batches of square and rectangular hollow sections in a tremendously reduced production lead-time. In order to widen the range of products, a second machine, a precision tube line RS50 was added to the plant during second quarter of 2010 which incremented production capacity of high-quality products up to 40.000 tons per annum.

 

Despite global economic crisis that badly hit the construction sector therefore the whole steel industry in Spain and Europe, Prime Steel continued its production activity until late 2012. As the production was not feasible anymore, it ceased its production activity and concentrated on trading and distribution. On the other hand, Prime Steel decided to keep its premises in the Port of Tarragona despite the continuing fragility in the Spanish and worldwide steel market with the hope of being able to resume its production activity when the economy is reactivated.
