Bill Shorthouse Metals started trading totally independently in 1998. Bill Shorthouse himself has over 40 years experience within the solder industry, having gained the bulk of his knowledge as a Senior Technical Representative with then the largest UK solder manufacturer.

He started his own business in 1986, a joint venture with another UK based solder manufacturer before going totally independent in 1998, enabling him to offer a full range of solders, solder wires, cadmium free silver solders, white metal casting alloys, fluxes and pastes.

A very large percentage of Bill’s customers have been with him for many, many years some as long as Bill has been in the solder business. An excellent recommendation.
