Who are we?

COBI Global was established by a team of experienced steel traders. Having worked together at various points in their careers, the founding members of the team had all forged strong relationships within the global steel trading market and with one another.

The combined skills of the team, along with combined experience of the markets – some 80 years – led them to joining forces in order to deliver a new, a far more efficient and beneficial way to source and deliver steel.

The most important thing learnt on their journey was that trust, respect and doing what you say you are going to do, is fundamental to sustaining good business relationships.

Our team is accessible to you at any time so please do get in touch if you have any questions.
