29 Apr 2020

Bisalloy Steels have signed an exclusive distributor agreement with OLBERT METAL SALES LIMITED for distribution of all Bisalloy Products in the North American market.

Olbert Metal Sales (OMS), established in 1982, based at Mississauga, Ontario Canada is a family-owned company having distribution centres throughout USA and Canada. Refer to https://www.olbertmetal.com for more detail.

The initial focus will be on entering the USA market with Bisalloy’s Armour and Protection steels and to service various defence companies and metal processors. They will also look for opportunities for wear and structural Bisalloy products for select applications only.

Greg Albert, Bisalloy Group CEO says “this is an excellent time for Bisalloy to begin to reengage with the North American market as Australia’s only specialty QT Steel manufacturer as there is a requirement for Bisalloy Armour steels to be available in North America for defence projects from our existing key international defence customers. Olbert’s have an extensive distribution footprint in North America and is well respected with a long history in the steel distribution industry. Bisalloy is excited at the potential of forming a long-term partnership with Olbert’s to develop the Bisalloy QT products in this important market”.

Tina Olbert, Vice-President of Olbert Metal Sales Limited, recognises the opportunities for Bisalloy and OMS to grow together in the American and Canadian Armour and Protection steel plate markets. “We are technically strong and experienced working with end-users, fabricators and engineers, on projects and applications often requiring special plate properties and unique solutions. Our company is well situated for Bisalloy plate distribution across the US and Canada. We are excited to become part of such a critical and vital market, as is the Armour and Protection steel market, with one of the best armour plate producers in the world. Bisalloy’s focus to produce not only high-quality plate for armour and mining applications but their flexibility and focus to provide excellent customer service while meeting their customers’ exacting requirements will match well with OMS’s passion to deliver these same standards to our clients.”
