In response to the current coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis in the UK, which is causing much concern and confusion to businesses, Bird Stainless Ltd and AKM wish to make the following statement regarding business operations.

At present we continue to accept and deliver orders within our usual lead times, and we continue to receive deliveries to ensure that our stock levels are maintained at their usual high standards.

Bird Stainless and AKM Steels take the welfare of our staff and customers very seriously. However, we are also acutely aware of the important role we play within continuous UK manufacturing and engineering operations.

Bird Stainless, AKM Steels and our logistics partners would like to reassure our customers that we will continually update the precautionary measures that we employ to protect our staff and the services on an ongoing basis, especially during these uncertain times.

These measures are defined by the guidance given by the official UK Governmental and Public Health Advisory organisations. These include the NHS, Department for Business Energy & Industrial Strategy, Public Health England and the Health & Safety Executive.

As a leading stainless steel supplier working closely with steel mills all over the world, Bird Stainless and AKM Steels are underpinned with many years’ experience in managing evolving risks. We are continually monitoring the threat and we have strong contingency plans in place to mitigate the inevitable challenges.
We will of course keep our suppliers and customers updated as we pride ourselves on straight-forward honesty and transparency. If you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to contact us via email at
