Do you know when the first stainless steel was discovered? It was in fact by Harry Brearley, a Sheffield metallurgist when he was doing a experiment with different types of steel in 1913. He noticed that a 13% Chromium steel had not corroded after several months and therefore called it a stainless steel.

Earlier this year, Graepels became members of the British Stainless Steel Association (BSSA). Graepels are committed to providing high quality service and are constantly looking to innovate and grow, which is why we chose to join BSSA. Being part of this organisation allows us to connect with companies, bettering our knowledge and allowing us to develop new relationships within the industry with the purpose of promoting greater use of stainless steel in the Ireland and the UK.

This organisation is a great asset to both Graepels and or customers/people looking to find more info on stainless steel. BSSA provides support and assistance to companies and helps customers who are looking for quality supplier within the industry. The BSSA has four principal areas of activity: help and advice, training and education, events and marketing development.

Advantages to using Stainless Steel:

  • Resistance to corrosion and high and low temperatures
  • Long life span
  • Can be easily perforated, fabricated, folded, cut and machined.
  • Hygiene Properties
  • Aesthetically Pleasing
