The West Midlands based Stockholder was founded in 1992. Since starting out as a supplier of welded stainless steel tube operating from the Group Chairman’s spare bedroom, the company has expanded by leaps and bounds. Today, UKF Stainless operates as the main stockholder and distributor of stainless steel tube for the UKF Group. In recent years, the brand has expanded into providing value-added services, including laser cutting and polishing.
The Joint Perforating Company (JPC) was founded in 2001 as the Group’s response to the growing demand for tube manipulation and perforation services. Over the last two decades, JPC has transformed from a small business with a tube perforating machine, into a pre-formed tube manipulating and perforating specialist. JPC currently operates from two West Midlands-based sites and works closely with businesses from the Automotive and Domestic Appliance industries.

We have worked alongside UKF for 20+ years purchasing high quality 304 and 409 stainless steel tubing. We have developed high quality decorative trims for OEM using their materials which are polished to an extremely high Automotive standard. We look forward to continually working with UKF into the future and thank them for their continued support.
After being stuck trying to achieve a target price of a fabricated assembly a colleague put me in contact with UKF Group, they offered an outstanding price and lead time on the laser cut tube with an upfront and honest approach to what was achievable. We have now been able to win the job and open the door to more tube laser fabrications.
Really easy to work with UKF/JPC, the whole team is dynamic, very nice and professional they make the difficult easy but never forgetting business. Congratulations!
Having dealt with our sales contact at UKF Group I can say that it’s honestly a pleasure. I am kept informed on the progress of my works, as well as being supplied with realistic deadlines and not a lead time to draw you into a sale.
We have requested some extremely tight schedules and we have been supported throughout our orders. Their pricing is what attracted us initially, the service we receive will keep us coming back.
As a major supplier to the automotive market we have been sourcing materials from the UKF Group over a number of years, I can confirm that during this period of time we have enjoyed excellent service, quality and re-activity and as such I would therefore have no hesitation in recommending them to potential customers who require that “extra mile” in pursuing total supply satisfaction.
We enjoy a very strong relationship with the UKF Group and have always been extremely pleased with the 5 star service and quality we get from them. They have been an ‘A’ rated supplier for many years and it is a joy to deal with this UK based company.
