Metals Service Center

We will cut bars to multiple lengths or slice into thin pieces. A piece can be cut from a sheet or plate.
We offer additional processes such as rough machining and light fabrication. Our lead times for machining and grinding depend on how much material is being quoted.
Special size or temper required? We have production capabilities in-house that produce bar to many tempers and sizes on an as needed basis.

Distributor & Producer of Exotic Alloys

While we aren't going to be the ones mining the material, we are able to do advanced work to refine or enhance the metal's native properties.
Our rotary forges, rolling mills, or 750 ton forge presses help us produce special metals beyond what was dug up.

We specialize in making the sizes and alloys that are not common, not produced yet or too small of a quantity that a larger mill will not produce!
