Services
 

Smiths Profiles was set up to provide an extension to the specialist stockholding and distribution service offered by Smiths Metal Centres Ltd. Whereas the parent company is a distributor for standard products in most common metals, Smiths Profiles specialises in custom aluminium extrusion profiles.

The service starts, however, by helping customers with their initial design, to work with selected partners to extrude, finish and fabricate the extrusions and to minimise the cost to the customer over the whole process.

Lower cost per piece is achieved by co-operation between the supply partners to:

  • Design for optimum production efficiency
  • Design for lowest fabrication and assembly complexity
  • Manage inventory costs by ensuring supply consistency and short leadtimes

As well as short leadtimes for ongoing supply, sample shapes can be manufactured in a matter of days. Smiths Profiles can manage the whole process on behalf of the customer from supplier selection through to final product assembly, packaging and delivery. The case study illustrates how this works in practice.
