Thin Metal Sheets Has the Resources

Thin Metal Sheets (TMS) has acquired a long list of vendors and contractors over the decades we’ve been in business, enabling us to find the right material necessary for any specialty job. In one such case, a client came to TMS struggling to locate the materials they needed at a price which fit in their project budget. At risk of losing a quoting opportunity, the client asked how we could help.

This job for our customer in the parts manufacturing industry required the following parameters:

  • Quarter Hard Aluminum (5052-H32)
  • Part Size: .025 x 1.000” with a tolerance of +/-.005”
  • 200 lbs., delivered in five weeks

Getting the Job Done

While Thin Metal Sheets doesn’t normally stock this type of aluminum either, our expert purchasing staff immediately went to work, contacting our large supplier network to locate the material necessary to do the job. After sourcing initiatives were successful, the sales staff was able to provide the client with a reasonable and competitive quote for the materials they required.

Subsequently, the client was not only able to get the information they needed to complete the quote, but thanks to our help were able to win the contract. In a win-win situation for everyone, TMS got the purchase order, the customer got the right product on time, and our client saved time and money by delegating the difficult task of sourcing hard-to-find materials to TMS.
