We have a unique ability to combine multiple processes into a streamlined, cost-effective offering. Global, industry-leading companies from Manitowoc and Liebherr to Metso, Steel Warehouse, Toyota Material Handling and Skanska, trust Proplate.

Why choose Proplate?

We handle everything from heavy steel plate sourcing to delivery. Our value proposition includes the capacity to work with large volumes and component sizes, as well as specialty steels and high-quality multi-stage steel processing. In addition, our partners trust us to manage precisely scheduled deliveries anywhere in the world. 

Potential opportunity

When the U.S. imposed new tariffs on steel from the EU, it did not include machined steel components. These trade protection measures have actually made it even more advantageous for U.S. customers to buy machined steel components from Proplate, compared with importing heavy steel plate and producing the components in the U.S. Our U.S. customers regularly receive shipments from our seaside manufacturing center
