NBM Metals Europe (NBME), a leading international metal distributor, has found a permanent home in Toulon in the South of France. Establishing operations in southern France takes advantage of the natural strategic crossroads of the area. The location provides travel by road throughout Europe, as well as easy accessibility for NBME shipments by sea. Both imports from suppliers and outgoing customer deliveries throughout the Mediterranean are easily serviced. The area itself has a strong industrial foundation in aerospace, petrochemical and naval industries providing an immediate supply source to the surrounding businesses.
