Your centralised and tailor-made solution for the global supply of carbon steel and stainless steel around the world.

About us

VM Steel has been a stockist and exporter of a wide range of steel products since 1875.

Other than standard grades of carbon steel and stainless steel, we also stock and market a range of flat, long and tubular products in specialised stainless steel (AISI 904L/W.NR 1.4539/UNS N08904/Uranus B6). This grade of steel is highly resistant to corrosion and is used, among other things, in the production and transport of sulphuric acid and phosphoric acid.

Located in the heart of Europe, in Belgium, VM Steel is a global player in the sector.

Our two warehouses (5,000 m² and 15,000 m²) located next to the Port of Antwerp, allow us to benefit from all the services and advantages of one of the largest ports in the world.

We keep a stock of +/- 20,000MT in order to be able to deliver quickly to our customers abroad. This stock is made up of flat, long and tubular products.

Through our historical partnerships with the major steel producers, we have privileged access to the various grades offered, thus allowing us to offer a global "tailor-made" project that will best meet the needs of our customers.




Our market presence

The company's international presence and its offer adapted to national markets make it a worldwide reference. VM Steel markets its products and services in nearly 100 countries around the world. With a passionate and experienced team, we promote personalised contacts and set up real "local partnerships" over the long term, particularly through our representative offices.
