​Farwest invests in an extensive inventory of A572/709 plate in grades 42, 50, and 55 along with A588/709W. Domestic stock also available.

Farwest understands that general grade specifications can be too broad for some plate specificaitons. From silicon restrictions to charpy tested material, if Farwest is not stocking the product you are looking for, then we can competitively source it.

GR100

Farwest is proud to carry plate thicknesses with yield strengths of over 100 KSI ranging from 3/16” to 3/8” in widths ranging from 48” wide to 52” wide. All inventory is sourced in coil form where Farwest can minimize waste by processing coil using Farwest’s state of the art Bradbury cut-to-length line. For thicknesses less thinner than 3/16” can be found under the Flat Roll section of product groups.
