Online Metals

Online Metals. Who we are and what we do for you.

As the world’s leading eCommerce metal and plastics supplier, Online Metals specializes in cut-to-size, small to medium quantity orders, shipped direct to any location. Our skilled customer service and sales team is ready to assist with any questions and to help with custom quotes and orders.

Online Metals was a garage start-up, founded in Seattle in 1998. The company has grown over the years and expanded to six facilities across the U.S., with over 100 employees and over 55,000 products. The continued growth and success resulted in an acquisition in 2007 by thyssenkrupp AG. Our customers range from private individuals and multinational corporations to small schools and massive government agencies, working on projects as diverse as furniture repair to space craft!

In short: we provide the materials you need to create amazing things!

Philosophy Leads to Success

The last thing we do is the first thing the customer sees. So, let’s do it right!

This core philosophy drives everything we do here at Online Metals, and the results speak for themselves! In addition to minding the details, we also strive to incorporate the idea of Kaizen within the company culture. Literally translating to “Continuous improvement,” we understand that everybody in the company should strive to always be better even in small ways.

It’s All About You

Everybody at Online Metals understands that you, the customers, are the reason we’re here. The company exists to help you, and it is your support and business that keeps the lights on and the metal shipping.
