DISTRIBUTING QUALITY AND SERVICE IN SPECIALTY METALS
Our business has grown from, and has been primarily derived from, referrals by our existing domestic and international customers, vendors, and the U.S. Navy. Much of this business is also derived from other nationally known metals distributors who rely upon our expertise with complicated requirements or value added services. Our employees have the training and expertise gained over the years to answer material, metal processing, and certification related questions from a point of knowledge and experience. Kept on file for your complimentary use are most specifications in their latest revisions that are used in the defense, marine, and valve/chemical processing industries. A valuable, audited vendor base also provides another level of experts at your service, no matter what the complexity of the job at hand. Our industry experience and detailed attention to quality control assures problem free material and, importantly, certification compliance and acceptance upon delivery. Our commitment to quality in all stages of material procurement and handling ensures the material arrives at your facility ready to be put into production with clear, concise certification in complete conformance to specification requirements.
