Robust Supply Chain
While there are many composite manufacturers in the market today, few operate both as a custom manufacturer for multiple industries and as a major ecommerce seller of off-the-shelf tubes, plates, and composite materials. We believe our two business segments compliment each other, and by having a steady manufacturing base of off-the-shelf products, we ensure we have the materials and labor to react quickly to custom projects. It also gives us a robust supply chain, keeping us functioning when other may be waiting for materials.
