Case Study

A key example of how we’ve been able to strategically partner with a client for materials management is with a prime aerospace contractor. Since March of 2007, we’ve worked tirelessly to ensure a streamlined supply of metal for their diverse and fast-paced production needs. Universal Metals works with our client’s project teams to coordinate the daily transfer of material and parts, process orders and have their metal ready for them at the precise time they need it. This partnership has provided peace of mind, knowing that materials are going to be in-house when and where needed. All of this is provided at a single cost-effective solution which allows them to remain highly efficient at what they do best, produce WORLD CLASS PARTS.
