Advent Research Materials

About us


Advent's purpose is to enable scientists to experiment, innovate and iterate with a wide range of metallic materials throughout the research process. Consequently it aims to provide as much choice as possible to the customer. In order to facilitate this, the primary objective of Advent’s is to continually expand the range of metals, alloys, forms, purities and sizes on offer. Since its entry to the market in the late 1980s the number of product lines available has increased fourfold.


Advent is able to differentiate itself from a number of its competitors, as it typically provides all its catalogue items "off the shelf".It is intended that the service we provide is fast, efficient and friendly. In particular, if the material you require is not an existing item, please contact us to see if we can help.


Advent’s service is one of supply, not consultancy; however it recognises the need to understand its customer’s requirements. Andrew Goodfellow has more than 40 years of experience in the metals industry. Chris Goodfellow possesses an Engineering Doctorate and a Masters Degree in Materials and Metallurgy, and will endeavour to provide assistance where possible.


Advent operates in a niche market on a global scale. It sells to over 85 countries around the globe, and supplies 19 out of the top 20 universities in the UK. One leading English university uses Advent’s materials in no fewer than 20 departments. Advent’s commercial customer base is also extensive, which ensures that our materials are in use at the forefront of the scientific industry.
