Steel Dynamics Group Ltd. Acquires Ferrari Stainless & Alloys Ltd. Launching P&P Non Ferrous: A Gateway to Enhanced Customer Services and Expansion Down South

In a strategic move to bolster its position in the industry, Steel Dynamics Group Ltd. proudly announces the successful acquisition of Ferrari Stainless & Alloys Ltd. in Wimborne.

This transformative development will pave the way for the rebranding of the acquired company as P&P Non Ferrous, unlocking an abundance of opportunities and logistical advantages for both companies and their valued customers. With this new acquisition, P&P Non Ferrous is positioned to expand its reach and representation and this will join not only at its Head Office in Birmingham at its main stockholding and processing unit, but also their dedicated sales office in Bristol.

Let’s delve into the materials and services Ferrari brings to the table and what customers can expect from this union.

Ferrari Stainless & Alloys Ltd brings an impressive product range and processing to the Steel Dynamics Group. Ferrari Stainless & Alloys Ltd is a leading supplier of premium quality Stainless Steel
and Aluminium products. Complete range in all grades. Sheet, Plate, Round Bar, Flat Bar, Angles, Squares, Hexagons, Tube (super mirror polished), Pipe, Fittings, Flanges, Studding and Fasteners.
This diversification will grant P&P Non Ferrous the ability to cater to an even broader spectrum of industries, such as aerospace, marine, construction and automotive on the South Coast.

Ian P Griffiths, CEO of Steel Dynamics Group commented:
“We are delighted to welcome the business to our family of companies. There is a great team at
Ferrari and we look forward to offering Ferrari customers the complete range of products and
processing from our group”

With the integration of Ferrari, P&P Non Ferrous adds to their advanced processing capabilities. Ferrari’s expertise in value-added services will not only enhance the existing operations but also open doors for custom solutions tailored to meet individual customer requirements.


One of the key benefits arising from this acquisition is the strategic positioning of P&P Non Ferrous in Wimborne facilitating improved customer service for clients located in the southern regions of the
United Kingdom. The logistical advantage of being able to swiftly service these areas will create shorter lead times, reduced shipping costs, and more personalised support for customers.

The addition of a Southern Office will strengthen P&P’s presence, showcasing an amplified commitment to customer satisfaction. Having a dedicated unit and experienced sales staff from the
acquisition will allow the company to have a more profound understanding of local demands and tailor their offerings accordingly.


Customers can anticipate an elevated experience with P&P Non Ferrous. With an expanded range of materials, cutting-edge processing capabilities, and a strategic network of representation, customers
will benefit from:

  • A Comprehensive Product range: Access to a diverse range of high-quality non-ferrous
  • materials, ensuring their project requirements are met with precision.
  • Tailored Solutions: Expert advice and custom solutions to match their unique applications,
  • enabling cost-effective and efficient outcomes.
  • Faster Turnaround Times: Reduced lead times due to localised servicing, ensuring timely
  • deliveries for time-sensitive projects.
  • Personalised Support: A dedicated team of professionals at the regional sales offices,
  • providing prompt assistance and understanding their individual needs.
  • Seamless Transactions: A streamlined supply chain, resulting in smoother transactions and
  • improved overall customer satisfaction.

The acquisition of Ferrari Stainless & Alloys Ltd. marks a transformative phase for Steel Dynamics Group Ltd, as it paves the way for the growth of P&P Non Ferrous. This strategic union will not only enrich the group’s product and service offerings but also provide an array of logistical benefits. With the expanded portfolio of materials and processing capabilities, P&P Non Ferrous is set to excel in delivering unmatched customer experiences, reinforcing its position as a market leader in the non-
ferrous metals sector.
