Global scale, local presence
Our international network enables us to establish a direct presence in many markets. Our philosophy is to work through small self-contained units, each with its own management and clearly defined areas of responsibility. EBCOM offices combine the personal touch and flexibility of small business units with the strength of a large group committed to common objectives, shared values and a unified strategy. Our local presence supports the development of close relations with our business partners, while our international network brings together buyers and sellers of steel in different parts of the world and allows us to offer expertise solutions to customers who are building up operations around the world.
EBCOM has expertise in several industry sectors, selling steel direct to end-users as well as to specialist stockholders. Our global product management brings a broad perspective, sourcing steel from a range of mills and making local stocks available in the regions of the world that consume high volumes of special steels
