Small lot metal purchasing now that Solways is gone

For makers and designers in the Greater Junction Area the loss of the Solways metal sales division, that closed down in recent mths was a considerable loss.

The business was an excellent source of small to medium purchases if HSS and bar steel stick as well as copper and aluminium. It was also geared as great drop in purchase centre for the needs of artists and maker designers – even if not planned as there direct model it organically developed is this manner for many artists and maker designers .

So if you are looking for a replacement – close by you can find one at 1401 the Qweensway.

    Really? where is sister company? what’s the name? does solway’s own that too?

      it is farther north in York, yes they own it.

      i will email them and ask is they mind if its posted the other location, its their privacy. The location is in a completely industrial location surrounded by similar messy businesses.

    I guarantee you there is no sister company. There gone for good (spoke to the owner)
    Try Metal Supermarkets in Don Mills . They will deliver small orders downtown for a $10.00 delivery charge. I always see their truck downtown. They’re located at Lawrence and the DVP. Great guys to deal with and very reasonably priced. I’ve been dealing with them for almost 10 years.

      Maybe the blog was unclear, (cannot view the actual post from IOS comment section – sorry) we were reporting the family as other interests in metal works. Not that the sister company is a metal distributor.
