Being a family business, we are committed to providing quality goods and services, with excellent customer service.  We strive for customer satisfaction, as our reputation is everything.

The quality of the materials and products offered are backed up with, not only a commitment to supply from the most reliable Stainless-Steel suppliers worldwide, but also within the scope of our ISO 9001-2015 Quality Management System, annually reviewed to ensure that the very latest standards are applied, and that all material will be supplied correct, every time.


The Bird family has been operating in stainless-steel since the late 1950’s and the business today is still family owned.  Stainless-steel runs through the Bird family like “wording through a stick of rock” and knowledge and skills have been passed down the generations.  The current owner and also Managing Director is Nigel Bird.  He has spent his entire working life in stainless-steel and his son Harry has also followed him into the family business.

Bird Stainless has been on its current site in Penistone near Sheffield since the 1970’s, but originally it was located in the centre of Sheffield, so has all the heritage of the “Home of Steel”, where there have been metalworkers since the 1300’s.
