New Orleans Welcomes Metal Supermarkets

Metal Supplier Brings Speed, Variety and Convenience to Louisiana

– Infusing innovation into a legacy industry, Metal Supermarkets arrives in New Orleans as a disruptive force.

The world’s largest supplier of small-quantity metals will open its New Orleans location on April 12th, becoming the one-stop shop offering speed, variety and convenience for professionals and hobbyists alike. Metal Supermarkets stores specialize in the sale and distribution of a wide range of metal types including hot and cold rolled, aluminum, copper, brass and stainless in a variety of shapes including bar, tube, angle, channel, sheet and plate; meeting the needs of a wide and diverse variety of customers that require these essential materials.

Located at 5820 Plauche St. in Elmwood, Metal Supermarkets New Orleans is open Monday to Friday from 8am to 5pm.

As the first location in Louisiana, Metal Supermarkets New Orleans offers 8,000 types, shapes and grades of metal, cut to each customer’s exact specifications. Along with its convenience, speed and commitment to customer service, Metal Supermarkets will be the trusted metals supplier for local manufacturers, machinists, maintenance and repair, tool and die shops, hospitals, hotels, universities, schools, homeowners, artists, hobbyists and more in New Orleans.

“There is a great need in the area for a metal supplier that ensures high quality materials and service. I’m prepared to provide the best solution for each customer that comes into our store,” said David Machado, owner of Metal Supermarkets New Orleans “I’m eager to begin serving the community, backed by the support of a talented team.”

Machado, who holds extensive knowledge and experience from the aviation industry as a helicopter pilot in command and heliport manager, is leading Metal Supermarkets’ entry to Louisiana. After consistently struggling to get the materials he needed in New Orleans, he took matters into his own hands and decided to open a Metal Supermarkets location. As a metal hobbyist himself, Machado looks forward to providing a convenient, fast option for other artists and professionals in New Orleans.

Each Metal Supermarkets location provides solutions to customers’ metal needs in both the business-to-business and business-to-consumer categories. With a diverse product base and a no-minimum order quantity, Metal Supermarkets will quickly earn long-lasting relationships with customers by delivering an exceptional customer experience.

“We look forward to opening our first location in Louisiana. This new location is a testament to our processes and systems and the demand in the industry for a fast and convenient small-quantity metal provider,” said Stephen Schober, CEO and President of Metal Supermarkets. “With a go-getter like David as the driving force of the new store, we’re confident he will find success and rapid growth in the area. Businesses and consumers in the Big Easy are going to love Metal Supermarkets.”

With locations across the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom, the New Orleans opening comes amid a pivotal growth period for the international metal-supply business. Deemed an essential business, the supplier ensures each customer in New Orleans will always be able to acquire what they need. Metal Supermarkets provides a recession-resistant, innovative and durable opportunity for interested franchise investors.
