Automotive Lightweight Expertise
In an effort to reduce weight and improve fuel efficiency, today’s vehicles are using increased quantities of aluminum and advanced high-strength steel. With our strategic focus on the automotive supply chain, Samuel is always prepared for the latest industry demands. We’re ready to deliver any automotive-grade metal you need, anywhere in North America, thanks to our industry-leading network of metal service centers across Canada, the U.S. and Mexico, our JIT delivery programs and our ongoing investments in capacity.
Investing In The Industry
Samuel is always looking for the right ways to grow, and our recent expansion to Columbia, Tennessee is a great example. At this location we’re able to provide Samuel customers with a one-stop processing solution. Product can be railed to the facility, slit, lubricated, and blanked all at one location. This offers significant cost savings, more quality control and greatly improved freight and logistics for our customers – this is just one example of the superior service Samuel is known for.
