How We Do It
We are a unique metal processing company because we’re a cradle to grave operation and our unique cost structure. The PMI Advantage means shortening the steel products supply chain. We accomplish this by combining the core competencies of steel service centers, steel stamping operations, and final assembly, all under one roof. Operating this way creates steel solutions for our customers with the highest efficiency and least amount of lead time and waste. The PMI Advantage utilizes current technologies in laser and turret short-run fabrication, coil-fed press lines and robotic welding. The payoff is the lowest cost metal solution for customers while maintaining the highest quality.
In addition to offering quality products at competitive prices, we exhibit operational excellence and continuous improvement. We practice Lean Manufacturing and 5S programs. Another key to our success is training employees beyond industry norms. We train employees using Critical Core Manufacturing Skills, which improves employees’ productivity and adaptability, as well as team-building and problem-solving skills.
