In 2006, we penetrated in a significant
way the glass and aluminum markets for the first time.
Our skilled metalsmiths now can fashion aluminum with
the same degree of expertise as we have done for decades
with steel and stainless steel, and others of the
heavier metals. In turn, we are now supplying 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,
Just call us for any further
info or specs you need on these available services.
We’ll be glad to update you on their current use
and potential application to your project.
Our house truckmen---Stockman
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 needs and delivery site logistics. We
use all the modern methods of packaging, packing,
crating, palletizing, securing and otherwise safely
delivering both your small and your large orders.

We regularly consult with the engineers,
subcontractors, suppliers and others already hired
by our customers to give them the benefit of our hands-on
knowledge of building peculiarities or code requirements
in such venues as NYC, NJ, Baltimore, Washington,
DC, especially for those uninitiated in the ‘finer’
points of these venues. The practical savings involved
in this leads to cost-efficiencies that may not be
easily quantifiable in advance or from afar. For example,
what is the value of having perfectly made panels
sitting on a flat-bed from South Carolina that cannot
be unloaded at a NYC jobsite due to a union “work-rule”
totally unknown at the point of shipment? What if
a boom truck is needed and you can’t know that
UNTIL your over-the-road driver gets into the bowels
and narrow streets of Baltimore, Newark or NYC? We
pride ourselves on knowing these details and making
these services available to our customers so that
a job is not unnecessarily delayed or an invoice unpaid
A second issue that plagues----then
delays----many smooth installations is ‘sourcing’
miscellaneous parts. We have a whole system dedicated
to this solution. We can
advance, without delay, your projects from our contacts
and supply sources, locally and nationwide. While
we fabricate in-house every day custom-finished and
production parts, we also slay the ‘devil in
the details’ by obtaining miscellaneous nuts,
bolts, widgets, springs, clips, and other minutiae
that are far cheaper to buy than to make simultaneously.
This all expedites your job’s timely completion.
We can consult and work with you to show how we can
help in this critical regard. Such “miscellaneous
metals” can give our parts---and your projects---an
even more unique quality and aesthetic ‘look’
beyond what your architect might generically design.
E.g., when we do some of our AESS
work, the end product is often unique in both finish
and color. But we can further get specially-milled
steel and add-ons creating details that set even these
finished projects apart. We’d like to work with
you from the get-go
to plan this before the final designs are struck.
How many times have you looked back
at the original project drawings and then compared
them with the ‘as-builts’? Striking, huh!
How many change orders were needed? How much did the
project cost accelerate? How many compromises were
made in the field? Did you always like the final product?
How much time was lost? What was the time-cost? Ouch!
Let us look at that section of the plans where we
have real-life decades of experience----and make suggestions
your engineer or architect can accept or reject. The
cost will be small compared to the net cost overruns
you’ve seen before.
As you can see or readily infer, we
work every day with licensed professionals. We know
welding specs, but only a certified inspector can
approve their application. For example, what engineers
and architects are licensed to do, no one else is
qualified to do, especially on the large job. We can
read plans before submitting a bid and break out all
the parts (and often note some errors overlooked),
but the final approval must come from the professional.
We all know this. What we can help you with is identifying
the expert you need at various stages of your job----and
in specific venues across this country, and further-----an
inspector you might need on a process not required
in your home state. We want to work with you to expedite
your job-----and to get you prepared to deal with
the myriad regulatory issues (weld specs
approvals, government guidelines requiring compliance,
licensing/permit agencies’ nit points, etc.)
that arise at each juncture of many jobs. The long-experienced
engineers, architects, inspectors and other licensed
professionals we talk to daily can get involved and
help your job to a swift and safe conclusion. We can
get them there promptly. Call
us----get us involved!
