Reasons to choose Scot Forge

Vast inventory

We maintain an extensive inventory of ferrous and non-ferrous materials including 17-4 stainless tail shafting grades, and nitronic, super duplex, and super austenitic grades such as Ferralium® 225, Hiduron® 191, and UNS S31254. From vacuum degassed air melt to ESR or VAR cleanliness levels, our forgings are supplied using the highest-quality material available. This ready inventory eliminates many of the delays associated with order processing, allowing for shorter lead times and quick reaction to market changes.

Fast delivery and breakdown services

At Scot Forge, we understand the importance of on-time delivery, so we strive to deliver parts on (or before) your delivery date. In critical circumstances, reduced lead times can be offered for breakdown and emergency orders in need of immediate production response.

ABS, DNV and Lloyd's Register approved

Our long-standing relationships with third-party agencies ensure your certification is complete, accurate and on time. Due to years of experience working directly with ABS, our knowledge and understanding of the industry's specifications are unmatched.

Flexible sizes, shapes and quantities

No matter the grade of material or shape and size of the part, our facilities are designed to support both single-piece and high-volume manufacturing. Utilizing our vast inventory of loose tooling and torch cut capabilities, we are able to reduce stock, which improves mechanical capabilities and limits additional machining.

Value-added options

With a dedicated account manager for each customer, you know who to contact when in need of a fast turnaround on a quote. Our technically trained staff, backed by our metallurgical engineers and forging experts, can provide you with the support you need to get your ship back in service.
