Advantages of Stigterstaal

Since 1956 Stigterstaal is a brand in the shipbuilding industry for the supply of shipbuilding plates and profiles. Located in the Netherlands near to Rotterdam, we stock about 40.000 tons of 3.2 certified steel and supply our materials door to door in more than 30 countries around the world. With our dedicated team we are always looking for the best solutions for each enquiry / project ranging from one truck of materials for the ship repair industry to a tailor made steel supply chain, including warehousing, just in time deliveries and further added services.

Since 2010 we have been active on the Canadian market being able to supply the right shipbuilding grades, right dimensions and according to the highest quality requirements. Started on the east coast, more and more customers in central Canada know where to find us when marine grade plates and profiles are required.

Having our main stock in the Netherlands, made us take the decision to be closer to our customers and consequently shorten delivery times. Therefore since 2021, we have opened our branch office and stockyard in Brantford Ontario.

From this location we are able to supply our plates and profiles with the shortest delivery time and are currently one of the only stock yards in North America who hold 3.2 certified plates and bulb flats on stock.

With a worldwide network of steel mills which we cooperate with and two stock yards one in Canada and one in the Netherlands you are able to benefit from our 65 years’ experience in the marine industry  ( the Dutch go back even longer in shipbuilding history 🙂 )  and having this within “ “your back garden” .
