at these “assemblies”!
In the center is our recent mock-up for our friends
at Enclos, as it was hoisted sixty (60) feet aloft,
so the ‘design team’ could get a bird’s
eye view of how it will look on the actual building
from the ground. On either side are two of our aluminum
assemblies installed to join the glass frame to the
Isn’t there a difference between shop labor cost
and field labor cost? How long does it take to assemble
critical items at the job site? How many times have
you lost parts in doing so? How many? A better question—how
many times have you been short “just
2 “ of the custom-fitted-washers,
three of the cut steel rods, or even just one of the
inserts??? How long was the job delayed? At what cost?
How much more does it really cost to assemble these
AT the job site,
rather than have the one-hundred needed at each floor
delivered ONLY to that floor and in its own, separate,
marked crate? Maybe even each of them is embossed with
its exact, unique ID number too!
SO----what’s the SOLUTION?
Answer: METFAB METALS' new
(for 2008) off-site assembly services!
METFAB METALS has the personnel
and equipment---and experience---to bring creative solutions
to many such ‘site’ assembly issues and
to prevent lost parts from going on your daily ‘headache
list’! We daily fabricate all the constituent
parts, pack them and ship them to our customers. Now
we want to solve in advance
problems that often arise after
our parts (and even those of others) get to your jobsite----in
the following logical steps!
it just cheaper, safer and more predictable to do all
these things before your
jobsite becomes the site of parts’ confusion,
instead of parts’ installation?
------------- This IS our core business.
Just look throughout our website and/or brochure. We
have hundreds of thousands of tons of successful production
and custom parts in many, many projects that show we
can fulfill all your needs in this step of your job.
All custom Finishes and Painting
are available too.
[Since 2006, we have penetrated the glass and aluminum
markets in a significant way. Our skilled metalsmiths
now can fashion aluminum with the same degree of expertise
as we have done for decades with steel and stainless
steel---as well as other heavier metals. We now supply
some of the largest glazing contractors in the world
with BOTH their required
steel and aluminum parts and structures. For a short
overview of this, look at the “Glazed Curtainwall”
page of this website (under “Products”),
as well as several of the monthly newsletters we post
and archive here (especially see our Verizon
glass project reported and pictured in the February,
2007 newsletter); the project at 51 Louisiana
Avenue in Washington, DC, illustrated in our December,
2007 newsletter and; the Constitutional
Center also there in the nation’s capital and
shown in our February, 2008 newsletter.]
--------- We already read your drawings
every day. Doesn’t it follow that we can take
all our fabricated parts and put them together as drawn,
before packing them? And we also can collect, even pick
up and/or receive the parts supplied by others and add
them into these unique assemblies, again before packing.
All the while our experienced assemblers really are
‘inspectors’ picking up/correcting the small
(or large) discrepancies in the pre-construction drawings.
That alone has a real value, and can be a real savings
for you too.
------------- What good are custom assemblies,
if your guys don’t know where they go? Think about
that! AND think about this also! When we get your fabrication
plans/specs, we also get the parts locations, as well.
SO-O-O-----we can simultaneously mark each part----emboss
it, if necessary----so that your on-site workers have
only to read the crate already placed at the appropriate
floor and then install it exactly where it was fabricated
to fit! I’ll bet you can recall where parts were
installed in totally wrong places, leading to their
removal and RE-installation
at another place with all the consequent time loss and
--------- Again obviously, we have done this for UN-assembled
parts from time out of mind. We use all the modern methods
of packaging, packing, crating, palletizing, securing
and otherwise safely delivering both your small and
large orders. Try us-----you’ll
see right away that we know how to do all of this well;
we can even address any particular needs you may have.
Then you can reach into our crate or barrel or pallet
and pull out not random parts that can get thrown about,
lost or mis-installed, but marked, assembled
Deliveries ---------- Our in-house
Logistix, LLC----provide us
daily with a fleet of four (4) dedicated trucks for
immediate LTL deliveries within a 500 mile radius of
our North Jersey shop. We also have the capacity to
deliver by common carrier, FedEx, UPS, trailer or boom
truck, according to your job’s specific needs
and delivery site logistics. We can TIME
(stagger) these deliveries so that you get only what
you need immediately and your limited work-site is not
wasted on storage and/or cluttered with parts to be
lost, stolen or mis-used! More $$$$
to your bottom line for your job!
