Metal Supermarkets supplies materials to businesses of all sizes. Whether it’s a Fortune 500 company or a small business, the customer will always receive the same fast, reliable service. Jim Wagner, owner of Specialty Sheet Metal, a full service metal fabrication and CNC machine shop in Kent, Wash., knows the benefits of using the world’s largest supplier of small quantity metals as his shop has been using the services of Metal Supermarkets Seattle for years.
“We buy a massive amount of stuff from them,” Wagner says of the metal supplier. “We use Metal Supermarkets almost every day. Sometimes, they may get three or more calls from us in a day. And they always have an understanding of anything we need.”
As a job shop, Specialty Sheet Metal handles an endless variety of fabrication jobs – stainless sinks, kitchens, tables, tools and mill parts – for commercial, industrial and residential clients. Since jobs change rapidly, Wagner prefers to order only the materials he needs for each project. Instead of having to manage an extensive and costly inventory of metal products, he lets the experts at Metal Supermarkets handle his inventory.
“It’s better for me to buy from Metal Supermarkets than buy from a larger carrier or mill. Instead of buying 20 feet of round bar, cutting 4 feet to use and storing the rest, I can call the store, get exactly what I need and won’t have to waste time, money or space on my floor,” says Wagner. “If our shop is full, I can call over and have the metal sheared and ready for when we need it. … I can keep the shop running and not have a drop off in productivity. … It’s like adding another person to my shop.”
Wagner knows if you solely go by price, there may be a cheaper price out there, but the service and intangibles make all the difference. He attests, “Metal Supermarket’s prices may be a little higher than some other suppliers, but in the long run it is more efficient and cost-effective for me to order from them.”
