Extrusion and Fabrication: What to Expect at a One Stop Shop

one-stop-shopThere are many advantages to choose to work with a an aluminum extrusion service that offers one stop shop fabrication. When it comes to the creation of most aluminum shapes and parts, there are two primary methods that are used to achieve the desired results. One is to work with a company that creates extruded aluminum shapes in standard sizes and types that will then send off your products to another company that does post extrusion operations to create a finished final product. The second method is to work with a one stop shop fabrication and extrusion services that does both parts of the process all under one roof.

While some businesses prefer to work with a couple of vendors to create alumium extrusion and fabrication vendors to finish the products, others see the benefits from working with a service that takes care of it all for them. This article will feature some of the benefits associated with placing your order with a company that will do extrusion and fabrication, plus other post extrusion operations all at the same place.

Advantage #1 – Lower Costs
There are additional benefits to choosing to work with one stop shop fabrication and the biggest is the cost savings. When a manufacturer does everything in one location, from making the extruded aluminum, whether stock shapes or custom, then is able to do all of the post extrusion operations, including fabrication and finishing, the cost that would normally be charged for shipping the products back and forth between locations is saved, as well as markups for coordinating the work between shops. You also avoid having to deal with additional production costs and fees charged by multiple locations. All combined together, it is more affordable to get your custom extruded aluminum and one stop shop fabrication from one manufacturer that you trust.

Advantage #2 – Shorter Lead Times
One of the reasons why Silver City Aluminum is able to offer clients shorter lead times and, in case of emergency, even quicker results, is because we do everything in house. We don’t have to send off your parts to other manufacturers to do the fabrication, finishing and other post extrusion operations. We take care of it all right here at our Massachusetts location. There’s no more waiting for the parts to have to travel long distances from one factory to another, allowing us to complete the entire process of the order much faster. It takes much less time to move your parts from one side of the one stop shop fabrication and extrusion facility to the other, than to move them across the state.

Advantage #3 – Better Results
Another bonus associated with placing your order at a place that does extrusion and fabrication and finishing all at one location is that you will get better results. You don’t have to worry that each factory location will be on the same page, because the work is being done all at the same shop. We are able to maintain greater quality control because we do not rely on outside companies that may not have the same methods or work ethic as we do, to get the job done right. This allows us to provide our clients with a higher level of quality in each and every part, product and piece that we produce.

Advantage #4 – Truly Custom Results
One of the things that we are known for at Silver City Aluminum is our ability to create truly custom results. From the very beginning in our design and professional consultation with each and every client to create custom steel dies for our extruded aluminum, all the way to the post extrusion operations where we are able to see the process to the very end. One stop shop fabrication means having total control over each and every item we create from start to finish, allowing us to do some pretty amazing things for our clients to exceed their expectations.
