Welcome to Brown & Wilson Carlisle

Brown & Wilson Steels (BWS) is part of Steelstock UK, which is the largest group of steel service centres in Scotland and northern England, with 5 depots throughout the region.

BWS Carlisle was established in 2011 by Ian Barke and Rob Anderton, who were joined shortly afterwards by Chris Beesley; all had previously held senior positions within the steel stockholding industry. In establishing its base in Carlisle and increasing its delivery fleet, BWS was showing its long-term confidence in the industrial, manufacturing, processing, construction and agricultural sectors in south-west Scotland and north-west England.

BWS is backed by northern Britain’s largest stock of mild steel products. This stock, together with an impressive range of processing capabilities, means BWS has a deserved reputation for satisfying its customers’ total steel requirements. Whether customers need long products or flat products, BWS Carlisle can supply them all, and in a multitude of steel grades. If customers require the steel processed in any way - cut to length, drilled, guillotined, plasma-profiled, shotblasted and primed - this can be done with the minimum of fuss and within the group’s facilities. In addition, we specialise in sourcing and delivering one-off or unusual steel requirements, drawing on our years of trading relationships within the steel industry.


At BWS and Steelstock UK, we are committed to playing our part in the re-generation of manufacturing in the UK. We are excited by the challenge of growing our business in Carlisle, Cumbria, Lancashire, Dumfries and Galloway. We will continue to play a key role in offering all steel-consuming sectors a real competitive choice combined with top-notch service.
