IPP Group are delighted to announce the opening of its new Carbon and Alloy Division which is now fully open for trade. The business which is being led and managed by carbon steel stock guru Mr. David Lees will start receiving the first of its initial 1700 of tonnes of pipe, flange and fitting stock this week.

 

David comments that “it has been a frantic six months or so, we have in that time found a near perfect 40,000 square foot warehouse with extra yard capacity, adjacent to our existing IPP Mardale site. We have reinforced foundations and expanded crane capacity to 10,000 tonnes. We have also had to install steel pipe bolsters into the warehouse and design the whole stocking infrastructure so that the fast moving stock can be shipped on a daily basis with the minimum of effort. Finally we have recruited a vastly experienced team whose experience in running this type of distribution business is essential.”

 

David has appointed Mr. Ahmed Kotwal has UK sales manager, David McCheyne as field sales manager and Simon Cordingly as internal sales manager with Stewart Birchall taking up the role of internal sales executive. All the team come with a wealth of experience and knowledge within the market which IPP Carbon and Alloy will operate.

 

The business will initially stock a full range of carbon steel piping products in ASTM A105N AND A333 GR 6/API 5L X52. As the business grows alloys and high yield materials will be added.

 

Jared Ayres – Group CEO states that “it is exciting times for the IPP Group, I had known for a number of years that there was a gap in the market for a first rate carbon steel stockholder that put customer service and quality at the forefront of the business model, but with all things it is not just the financial investment but the  right people and when David became available, I knew he was the man to take this business and build it into a real force. David has already accomplished this twice before so it’s good to have him on board as a partner.”
