Metra are the UK’s leading distributor of hard metals for the roofing and cladding industry.
Founded in 1974 from the ashes of the last zinc rolling mill to operate in the UK, Metra took up the mantle of supplying hard metals to a small market of traditional metal roofing contractors & fabricators. In due course Metra came under the control of Grillo-Werke AG giving access to a wide range of products including specialist zinc alloys, wire, sheet & coil.
With the advent of the improved quality Zinc/Titanium alloy Metra gradually prospered. The use of hard metals increased as architects saw how the superb aesthetic capabilities of not only zinc but copper & stainless steel gave them endless possibilities.
In 2008 we re-located to a new purpose built warehouse in Hoddesdon, and have continued to grow and expand our capacity so that we can add new lines including Aluminium, rainwater goods, tools & associated materials.
With a dedicated, knowledgeable & experienced staff we aim to uphold & improve on our reputation as the foremost supplier of hard metals in the UK
