SB Specialty Metals
SB Specialty Metals LLC (SBSM) was formed in January 2010 through the acquisition of the assets of Crucible Service Centers, a division of the Crucible Materials Corporation.
SBSM is a full-line specialty metals distributor with a focus on conventional and powder metal tool steels and high speed steels. The company services many industrial and retail sectors including aerospace, automotive, energy, tool and die, stainless steel distribution and high quality knife products. SBSM maintains supplier relationships with mills all over the world – these mills have been chosen as SBSM suppliers for their ability to produce high-quality products competitively and meet delivery requirements. The ability to manage these supplier relationships and source a wide range of products makes SBSM unique in this market. For powder metal products, SBSM has entered into a long term supply relationship with Carpenter Powder Products, a division of Carpenter Technology Corporation, and one of the world’s largest producers of gas atomized powders.
With ten service centers located across North America, SBSM has the most coverage and inventory points to meet customers’ delivery requirements. The service centers have a reputation for excellent service and delivery and a range of value added capabilities such as precision and production sawing, grinding and milling, and also provide other conversion services such as lathe turning, boring and heat treatment through local partners. These service centers maintain an inventory of a wide range of products to support all customer requirements on a short delivery cycle.
