OEM Steel Supplier
If you’re an Original Equipment Manufacturer or Tier 1 supplier of one, you’re likely under pressure to turn around orders quickly. In competitive sectors where OEM structures prevail – automotive, appliances, clothing, lawn and garden, aerospace, and electronics, to name a few – the brand whose products are the slowest to market may never keep pace. With Arbor/Metals Inc. in your corner, you’ll always have reliable access to the alloy steels you require, no matter when and where you need them.
Why Does Steel Matter To OEMs?
Generally speaking, an OEM supplier is a company that manufactures components and assemblies on behalf of a known entity, which then places its brand on those products and resells them to consumers. A lot of work goes into becoming an approved supplier to a household name, but the status can be taken away quickly if benchmarks aren’t met.
OEMs want to know supply chain partners offer high on-time delivery rates, zero returns, and minimal unplanned downtime. They’re looking for manufacturers who can stand out by providing better turnaround times across products.
Whether you’re an OEM seeking to get products to store shelves or a supplier to one aiming to deliver parts to a factory on time, a great way to meet your goals is steady availability of metal alloys.
Strong, lightweight, and formable, they are used to make various OEM products. Examples include:
- Timer Terminals
- Drip Pans
- Communications System Chassis
- Battery Enclosures
- Power Supply Covers
- Smoke Detector Battery Terminals
- Mounting Plates
- Connector Plates
- Structural Pieces
- Drawer Inserts
- Fire Extinguisher Valve Caps
- Garage Door Opener Brackets
- Engine Caps
- Rocket Motor Nozzles
