A. M. Castle & Co. (NYSE:CAS) is the foremost provider of specialty products, services, and supply chain solutions. We are recognized as a leading distributor of carbon, alloy, stainless steel, nickel alloys, aluminum, titanium, cast iron, brass, copper, and plastic, as well as a global resource for complex supply chain solutions.
Operating in more than 55 locations throughout North America, Europe and Asia, we work with international OEMs to better serve their multi-location production requirements and delivery needs. We also leverage our long-standing metals experience and focus on processing and other value-added services to better meet the unique requirements of industries such as aerospace, defense, oil and gas, power generation and heavy equipment.
By expanding our capabilities and services, A. M. Castle is growing to serve the more complex requirements of customers who are outsourcing non-core functions. Our highly regarded H-A Industries, a state-of-the art bar processing facility, provides an extensive range of thermal treating and finishing services. In addition, we offer a comprehensive range of (high value added) processing services for plate, sheet, tubing, and bar products from many of the locations in our North American network.
Today, A. M. Castle is continuing to expand globally. Since acquiring full ownership of Castle de Mexico in early 2004, we have seen this organization grow rapidly. With the acquisition of Transtar Metals in 2006, we have further extended our global footprint with two locations in Europe, along with a strong network of agents throughout Asia; more than a third of Castle Metals Aerospace’s customers are located outside North America.
To accommodate this accelerated growth in products, services and customer support, we are continuing to expand and strengthen our infrastructure. This work includes key efforts in an organization-wide ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system, as well as re-engineering in specific facilities.
More importantly, A. M. Castle continues to focus on developing the strongest service team in our industry. We are committed to developing our team to ensure that we have the right people, with the capabilities and experience needed, to provide our customers with best-in-class service and support.
