For instance, re-tooling is underway to increase the efficiency and product output of carbon steel expanded metals and gratings. Plus, aluminum and stainless steel expanded metals are now available for immediate shipment. These basic production upgrades allow the company to better serve customers while offering them a wider range of products.
“MetalSpand has a solid customer base and we appreciate their loyalty,” says Phillips, Jr. “We are counting on the MetalSpand team as we grow to help with all our customers’ expanded needs and more. We will work relentlessly to ensure the success of our newly acquired expanded metal manufacturing company.”
