UK's Specialised Aluminium Extrusion Suppliers

Based near Birmingham in the West Midlands, LA Metals is the UK’s premier supplier of Aluminium extrusions. Our stock range is vast, and if it’s not the largest range of standard Aluminium profiles in the UK, it’s pretty darn close. We specialize in high quality 6063 and 6082 extrusions, handled with care and supplied alongside all the services needed to complement this material. Using the latest CNC’s, we can add fabrication to standard or bespoke sections and then polish, powder coat or anodise to your specification. And of course, on stock items we offer an unrivalled next day service to much of the UK. We know our customers need a competitive, reliable, quality supplier and that is why we always strive for Excellence in Aluminium.

As one of the UK’s most trusted Aluminium Stockholders, we provide an unrivalled range of Aluminium profiles, including Angles, Box sections, Tubes, Channels, hard to find Mouldings and loads more. Our material is used in a vast array of applications, from pet wheelchairs to curtain walling on some of the UK’s landmark buildings. If it’s an aluminium extrusion you are after, look no further.

We have been supplying extrusions for decades and have amassed huge experience in the additional services needed to complement our vast range of profiles. We can fabricate aluminium profiles in-house using CNC’s and automatic saws. We can then drill, slot and mitre sections to your specification before adding the ideal finish, whether that be anodising, polishing or powder coating. Just contact our experienced team for more details or a quote.

Even our huge range of standard sections doesn’t cover every requirement. If your job calls for something that little bit unique, we’ve been making and stocking bespoke sections for over 30 years. Speak to our sales team who can guide you through the design process and bring your specific requirement from idea to reality. We can then stock hold for call off at your convenience.
