Primesteel was founded in Barcelona, Spain in 2000 as a trading and wholesale distribution company of steel products. Bemaco Holding Ltd., its parent company, trading in hollow sections and long products had decided to extend its trading and distribution activities to Spain, the third largest importer of steel products, after years of successful operation in the U.K.

 

Since its inception, Primesteel has established a sales network in the whole Iberic peninsula and developed a vast list of satisfied clients with whom it has been keeping abreast of the prosperous Spanish market. The majority of its clients are steel stockholders and service centers.

 

In 2008, Primesteel has installed a state-of-the-art cold forming hollow section line called FCF (flexible cold forming) at its premises in Tarragona Port enabling the company deliver smaller batches of square and rectangular hollow sections in a tremendously reduced production lead-time. A second machine that would widen the range in both hollow sections and tubes is expected to come on stream during second quarter of 2010 which would bring the production capacity of Primesteel up to 40.000 tons/yr of high quality products.

 

The production team merges its extensive knowledge and years of experience with the machinery of the latest technology to satisfy even the most demanding clients.

 

Together with its production and administration facilities, Primesteel occupies 12.000 sqm in Tarragona and reaches out to its clients nationwide and worldwide through its sales network of local sales offices.
