In 1982, Continental Hardware - which is now known as Continental Steel Pte Ltd - started off as a small trading company at Jalan Wangi (off MacPherson Road), occupying a floor area of 35 square metres with no warehousing facilities. It advanced progressively with the nation to become one of the biggest steel suppliers carrying material from all over the world in the stock. Along with its development, Continental Steel has increased the trading and stockholding capacity and now owns a 33,000 square metres of fully covered and multi-storey warehouse. The company has a significant sales turnover increase over the past few year with more than S$150M in 2006.

The warehouse is facilitated with the latest handling systems, ensuring quick delivery and turn-around time. Not only does it have a conducive environment for better production, it also has the capability of operating round the clock to meet extra large quantity deadlines. There are also 20 heavy-duty over-head cranes, which are remotely controlled for loading/unloading operations. With larger stockholding capacity, the warehouse is now able to accommodate 150,000 tons of material in a rust protected environment.




Apart from being a steel supplier, Continental Steel also provides value added services such as shearing of steel plates (up to 20mm thickness) and cut & bend operations managed by our subsidiary company, Viewforth Trading and Engineering. Beams and columns of up to 40-inch section height can be sawed accurately with the help of auto sawing machines. Auto shot blasting treatment and painting are also readily available for a better surface finish and protection. The fully computerized system and a highly motivated team of staff members provide a more efficient processing of regulatory formalities and deliveries.

Continental Steel is primarily engaged in the warehousing and distribution for structural steel.
