Our adaptation of JIT Inventory has been extremely beneficial to our customer base. We continually update our inventories to meet the needs of our customers and keep high-volume inventory of products on-hand so that we are ready to meet demands. This allows our customers to increase efficiency by receiving the materials as needed, which helps to decrease inventory costs.
Our customers choose us for several reasons. The JIT Inventory pairs well with our 24-hour turnaround on most coil orders. Receive orders on time and with little fuss. This is made possible by our professional drivers and dedicated support team. We aren’t interested in just meeting your expectations of service but exceeding them.
Coil steel slitting, often referred to as rolled steel slitting, is a process by which wide coils of metal are fed lengthwise through a slitter and cut into narrower coils. As the coils runs through the slitter, extremely sharp circular blades – one upper, and one lower – make the cuts. These are commonly called knives and can be moved to make sheet metal strips of differing widths.
East Lake Metals offers custom slitting. Therefore, during the slitting process, the metal coil can be broke for weight and packaged to your specifications.
We furnish Galvalume®, galvanized and pre-painted steel coils with a variety of colors and customization to match the color you need for your project.
