So, who are Langley Alloys?

Founded in 1938, Langley Alloys was created to develop high-performance alloys for naval and aerospace applications and its history includes the patent for the very first commercial super duplex stainless steel, Ferralium 255 and the invention of the highest-strength copper-nickel alloy Hiduron. This isnow widely used in modern subsea applications.

Rising from the special copper alloys division of High Duty Alloys and developed into a fully integrated metal production company on a site at Langley in West London, it grew steadily throughout World War II. This acceleration was accredited toseveral successful alloy developments, including the high-strength Naval alloy Hidurax Special and the copper bearing alloy, Hidurel® 5, which was a major engine bearing on the Spitfire aircraft. During the 1970s, the company employed over 500 people in metal manufacture, which included casting, rolling, forging and fabrication as well as a successful valve design and production division. Over time the company relocated from its original site and went through several name changes as parts of the business were separated.

Elements of its proud history are still visible today, as Langley Alloys continues to supply a family of unique products for demanding applications. In more recent years, Langley Alloys has continued to focus on the distribution of corrosion-resistant alloys alongside proprietary products. The addition of sites in the United States provides global reach and the ability to support customers wherever they are located.Nowadays, it operates from specialist facilities in the UK and USA, where the comprehensive stockholding of bars, platesand pipes allows the company to supply customers globally. It is also a distribution partner for Alleima (formerly Sandvik) and Voestalpine BOHLER Edelstahl, carrying an extensive range of their stainless steels, duplex and super duplex stainless steels and nickel alloys.
