Vanilla Steel is your destination for excess steel.
We believe excess steel should be easy to source and sell online. We enable buyers to find and buy excess steel directly from European producers and stockholders. We offer you semi-finished, overrolling, excess material, declassified material as well as aged stock.
Steel producers and stockholders regularly have material in inventory due to excess production, quality issues during production, or that has been in the warehouse too long. Within the industry, this material is known as excess steel. Every week, new auctions are published, and buyers can bid for the material. At the end of the week, the material is allocated and the fulfillment process begins.
