To our valued customers, business partners, and friends:

On August 1, 2007, was acquired by ThyssenKrupp Materials North America, one of the largest providers of production materials and integrated supply chain solutions in North America.

So, what does this mean for you?

  • Better pricing. A leader in the world of industrial materials, ThyssenKrupp Materials NA is farther up the supply chain than is, and, as a result, they buy in much larger quantities and often at considerably lower prices than does OLM. Those savings will be passed on to our customers.

  • Access to more materials. Our new parent operates an expansive network of service centers throughout North America and offers a superior variety of metal and plastic products as well as processing capabilities. OLM will have access to their vast inventories. If you can't find it here, it probably isn't made.

  • Small Quantities? No Problem. Large Quantities? No Problem. has always been great at small quantity orders. Need a couple of feet of something? We've probably got it. ThyssenKrupp Materials NA is the expert in larger quantity orders. Need a couple of bundles of something? They've probably got it.

  • Secure lines of supply. By joining the ThyssenKrupp Materials NA family, we've ensured that will be able to keep doing the things it has been doing for a long, long time. ThyssenKrupp's global resources and financial stability are unmatched in the industry.
