About Cole & Swallow Materials Limited

Our roots go back to 1807 so we have an enviable depth of knowledge. Some Companies can fall into the trap of thinking "tried it once; it didn't work" - we review and enhance our processes continuously in order to achieve new product capabilities. We are led by you, the customer.

We specialise in heat exchanger alloys: small quantities of non standard sizes, hard to find alloys, special quality & size requirements and oval tubes. We also hold a range of standard sizes in stock for rapid delivery and really want to discuss your contract requirements.

On our precision tube side we work to tolerances which can only be achieved by cold drawing and we offer a range of finishing operations too.

We act as mill agents and, in collaboration with our supply partners, hold stocks of a large range of special & precision products for a variety of end uses: nickel alloy & stainless tube, special brass machining rods, pneumatic cylinder tube, control panel switch components and much more. If we don't have stock we can usually offer a quick delivery on even hard to find materials. View our product guide for more detail.

Cole & Swallow Merger

Cole & Swallow Limited

Cole Tubes Limited and Swallow Metals & Components Limited merged at the end of March 2005 and will trade as Cole & Swallow Materials Limited. The name recognises the history of both companies, each respected in their own fields of expertise, but signals a new start. Both old and new visitors to the website are encouraged to review our product range which has been significantly extended.
