PROCESSING & SHIPPING

PROCESSING YOUR ORDER

Moments after placing your order online we begin the fulfillment process. Every order leaving any of our six warehouses is cut-to-size and hand-packaged just for you. Beginning with mill length sheets and bars, each piece is carefully processed with strict quality controls to ensure your order arrives exactly how you want it.

CUTTING METALS AND PLASTICS

Each of our facilities is equipped with saws and shears to cut both long and sheet stock materials. In addition, our Northeast warehouse is able to quickly process thick plate (up-to 0.5 inch depending on material). All long and sheet stock is cut with a tolerance of +0.125" / -0.0".

SHIPPING YOUR ORDER

Since orders often contain materials of varied dimensions, we may split your order into separate packages to make sure that each item is properly padded and secured in the most optimal way to prevent damage during shipping.

PROTECTIVE PACKAGING

To ensure your materials arrive in the best condition possible, we've collaborated with local manufacturers to design custom shipping packages that support the unique characteristics of fabrication materials. Our exclusive tubes are designed to protect long, heavy pieces to prevent bending or crushing, while minimizing shipping expense for you. We also take extra care in packaging sheets to ensure that delicate corners do not bend or warp in the shipping process. Our specially designed sheet packages are customizable to accommodate each specific piece being shipped, and are trimmed with specialty v-board and corners to maintain structure and safeguard your sheet during shipping.
